World Autism Awareness Day

Help spread awareness and increase acceptance of people with ASD so they feel included and treated as equals.

World Autism Awareness Day is celebrated on 2 April each year, the day seeks to increase the community’s awareness and understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) throughout the world.

Established in 2008, World Autism Awareness Day is one of only seven official health-specific United Nations Days.

More than 200,000 Australians live with ASD, according to Australian Bureau of Statistics.

The day also brings individual autism organisations together all around the world to aid in research, diagnoses, treatment, and acceptance for those affected by ASD.
