PHILADELPHIA, PA March, 2018 – For the sixth consecutive year, EBS (Educational Based Services) will be Lighting It Up Blue the first week in April at its Philadelphia area headquarters. Each year, EBS decorates its building in thousands of blue LED lights as part of the Light It Up Blue campaign, a unique global initiative to raise awareness for Autism. Light it Up Blue aligns with World Autism Day, which falls on April 2, 2018.
“We’re proud to help raise awareness about this growing disorder,” says EBS President, Mark Stubits. “We’re even prouder to let those who struggle with Autism and their loved ones know that they aren’t alone,” adds Stubits.
Annually, EBS serves more than 30,000 children who are on the spectrum. Families around the country rely on EBS’ team of Speech-Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Behavior Therapists, School Psychologists, Special Educators, and Support Staff to help their loved ones improve balance, communication, self care, social skills, behavior, and more.
EBS joins the ranks of iconic landmarks around the world who Light it Up Blue each year, including the Empire State Building in New York City and Willis Tower in Chicago. Tower in Toronto and Kingdom Tower in Saudi Arabia, as well as countless bridges, airports, museums, and retail stores across the globe, will all illuminate in blue to spread awareness about autism.
