From March 28th to April 3rd, we can celebrate Autism Acceptance Week!
This is a time to recognize children, teens, and adults on the autism spectrum and spread awareness of neuro-divergence in our communities. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a condition that is characterized by having challenges with social skills, speech and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors.
This week is a great opportunity to learn more about autism and get involved with online groups or read more about it.
Autism Acceptance Week also shows us the importance of acceptance. Whether it be self-acceptance or embracing everyone around us. The goal of this week is to listen and learn from others and see the world from another perspective.
We can all take the time to understand one another on a deeper level. Now is our chance to show support and continue to appreciate the differences we all have.
