Students across South Jersey blow Bubbles for Autism

{{featured_button_text}}

Schools and organizations across the region participated this week in the national Bubbles for Autism awareness event.

Bubbles for Autism was started in 2004 by Ventnor mom and FACES 4 Autism founder Isabelle Mosca, whose son has autism.The event takes place every April during Autism Awareness Month.

“These bubbles symbolized hope, joy and laughter that we wish to spread to the families in our community facing the different forms of autism,” said Little Egg Harbor Township teacher Marissa Elwood, who organizes the event at her school district.

Autism is defined as a developmental disorder and affects one in every 68 children in the United States and 1 in every 45 students in New Jersey. The disorder presents itself on a spectrum, meaning it affects every individual differently. There is no known cause for autism, but funding and research continue.

Mosca said FACES will begin a new teen group in April, in conjunction with Family Service Association at the Inland Success Center in Egg Harbor Township.
