World Autism Awareness Day

Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. These signs all begin before a child is three years old. Autism affects information processing in the brain by altering how nerve cells and their synapses connect and organize; how this occurs is not well understood.

World Autism Day, also called World Autism Awareness Day, is marked on April 2. It was designated by the United Nations General Assembly at the end of 2007. There are many celebration activities all over the world on April 2 – World Autism Day.  “Autism knows no geographic boundaries — it affects individuals and families on every continent and in every country,” said Suzanne Wright, co-founder of Autism Speaks. “The celebration of World Autism Awareness Day is an important way to help the world better understand the scope of this health crisis and the need for compassion and acceptance for those living with autism. This remarkable day — the first of many to come — promises to be a time of great hope and happiness as we work to build a global autism community.”
