Braintree has declared April Autism Awareness Month, and has lit up Town Hall with blue candles to signify the event. Town officials hosted a ceremony on April 2 to sign and seal a proclamation. Mayor Joseph Sullivan emphasized the importance of the event, saying one in every 88 children will be diagnosed with some form of autism. “While we have taken giant steps forward in the understanding and treatment of autism, we still have a long way to go,” Sullivan said in a release in which he praised the work of the Special Education Parent Advisory Council and the Braintree Autism Network.
