Augusta Mayor Raises Autism Awareness

Posted: Updated:
Augusta, GA - April is Autism Awareness Month and today is recognized as World Autism day or "Light it up Blue for Autism day."

Mayor Deke Copenhaver officially named April 2 Autism Awareness Day in Augusta.
The local campaign for a designated day was spear-headed by Deidre Roberson, whose son, Marshall has autism.

"We don't have a great support system here in Augusta," Roberson says. "When it happened to me, I didn't have anyone."

Deidre is holding a forum Saturday for families affected by autism.
