“The MAX Foundation began in (1998) with Teresa’s idea of creating a logo as a unification symbol for Special Education. The logo and subsequent pin is called the “Kaleidoscope Pin©” for special education/autism awareness and is analogous to the ribbon campaigns for Breast Cancer and AIDS awareness.
