Bridgehampton School special education teacher Angela Selvaggio and Director of Pupil Personnel Services and ENL Carlos Bermudez have been engaging students and staff in a districtwide recognition of autism during Autism Awareness Month.

Ms. Selvaggio sent an email to her peers to thank them for advocating for and working with diverse learners so that all Bridgehampton students can call the school “a home away from home” and walk the halls with dignity. She had autism-awareness ribbons, resources and a fact sheet about autism sent to their individual mailboxes.

Second grader Oliver Schwartz helped by handing out autism awareness pins to the staff and students.
