‘The Lorax’ screening to aid autism awareness

Seymour High School’s JAG program is sponsoring a presentation of “The Lorax” at 6 p.m. Friday in the auditorium.

The Dr. Seuss movie was selected because the author wrote books with autistic children in mind, student Sidney Stout said. She is president of the school’s Jobs for American Graduates program, which is shining a spotlight on children with autism this month.

“This month is known as Autism Awareness Month, and we are doing a project for the whole month to let people know about not only autism but also learning disabilities,” Stout said.
