Today, April 2nd, is World Autism Awareness Day (WWAD). It was declared by the United Nations General Assembly in 2007 in perpetuity. World Autism Awareness Day shines a bright light on autism as a growing global health crisis. WAAD activities help to increase and develop world knowledge of the autism epidemic and impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, WAAD celebrates the unique talents and skills of persons with autism and is a day when individuals with autism are warmly welcomed and embraced in community events around the globe. Here is the official website. Here is the Facebook page. And a lovely video below which seeks to address some of the myths of Autism.
