April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day

In 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day, with the goal of bringing the world’s attention to autism. 

World Autism Awareness Day helps celebrate the unique talents of children and adults with autism, and helps bring light to relevant issues children and adults with autism experience. 

This year's theme is about empowering women and girls with autismIn a world where gender imbalances are pervasive, women and girls with disabilities experience gender-base violence, abuse and socio-economic marginalization at disproportionately higher rates. World Autism Awareness Day is our opportunity to enable them with a humanity that is often lost in today’s modern world.
