Happy World Autism Awareness Day!
World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognised day on the 2nd of April every year, encouraging Member States of the United Nations to take measures to raise awareness about people with autism throughout the world. Since its inception autism awareness and research around the world has increased as a result.
World Autism Day is also one of only four official health-specific UN Days. The day itself brings individual autism organisations together all around the world to aid in things like research, diagnoses, treatment, and overall awareness for those with the disorder.
Everyone is encouraged to ‘Light it up blue’ on World Autism Awareness day to show their support! https://www.autismspeaks.org/liub/what-liub
