SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

Take a night drive past the city hall in Sioux City lately?  If so, you might have noticed that it looks a little different.

The clock tower is lit up in blue in honor of Autism Awareness Month, as is the entrance to the Pier Center for Autism.

The center recently partnered with Briar Cliff University to help increase services for those with autism spectrum disorder.

"The Siouxland community really has embraced the Pier Center for Autism, and those with Autism, it's not an easy battle, and we appreciate all the help we can get," said Tony Michaels, Pier Center for Autism.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, about one in 88 children have autism spectrum disorder.
