Third-graders at Jefferson Elementary School released blue balloons into the sky Wednesday afternoon in an effort to raise autism awareness. Autism is a developmental brain disorder that impairs a person's ability to communicate and interact socially.

The event was organized by Jennifer Cabezas, who has twin boys, Ethan and Shelby, in the third grade who have autism. Wednesday is World Autism Awareness Day, and Cabezas wants the community to know how many people are affected by the disease.
