April is Autism Awareness Month

April 2020 is Autism Acceptance Month

Acceptance Wordle

For several years now, there has been a shift from autism awareness month to autism acceptance month. "Acceptance is an action. This means that autism acceptance is an active process that requires both a shift in thinking and in action." (Autistic Self Advocacy Network)

"It goes beyond just being aware that autistic people exist. It’s about equal rights and justice for the autistic community, treating autistic people with autonomy and respect, and adopting a 'nothing about us without us' mindset that autistic people should be at the center of conversations about autism." (Alaina Leary)

Please visit our Autism Website for activities to do with your family during this month and during this difficult time. We hope you are all well and are staying safe. Take Care…
