April is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month! To recognize its significance, agencies from across the county are “shining brighter together” to bring engaging programs, activities and mini-events for all to enjoy! Creative programs will focus on sharing positive, respectful, and accurate information about autism while informing the community about the variety of resources available in Montgomery County. Events are independently coordinated by Montgomery Parks, Montgomery Recreation, City of Takoma Park Recreation, City of Rockville Recreation and Parks, City of Gaithersburg Parks, Recreation and Culture, ArtStream, and the Montgomery County Public Library System.

Looking for more ways to engage AND win prizes? Play along with our Shine Brighter Together Puzzle! 

  • Download and print the Shine Brighter Together Puzzle 2021. Each puzzle piece represents a different activity to enjoy throughout the month.
