Blowing bubbles, Brown said, is the perfect activity to allow students to mingle and play with one another.
“We want everyone to experience fun together,” Brown said.
During the event, students split off into classroom groups. Each classroom was partnered with a mix of students and instructed to share bubbles and talk.
“This year we have the different grade level sitting together with buddy classrooms, as buddy classroom they will get to experience the event with an older child, a young child, a child with disabilities, all together,” Brown said.

In addition to holding the bubble blowing event, Brown also created an interactive autism awareness bulletin board.
The board features true/false questions like, “Some people with Autism use pictures, sign language or iPads to communicate,” and “Students in the Autism classrooms get to play all day and don’t have to work.”
“A lot of us are taught ‘don’t ask questions’,” Brown said. “During Autism Awareness Month we encourage students to ask questions and have a dialogue.”
