VIDEO: It is a shirt with a greater purpose. "Our students collaborated together, and they created this design, and they all participated," said Michaela Reynolds, autistic support teacher at Reading High School. The Reading Fire Department is selling autism awareness t-shirts, designed by students in an autism support program at Reading High School. "It helps them to express themselves freely," Reynolds said. "I let them design whatever colors they wanted to use." The money raised goes towards the program. "In class, we learned about life skills that we do in this class to support at Reading High as teenagers and students, that we do in life," said Gavin Negron, a student. Students who created the shirt said they like the design. "I feel quite happy," said Brendaly Matos Aponte.
