April is Autism Acceptance Month!!
It’s Autism Acceptance Month!
The Autism Society believes that acceptance is creating a world where everyone
in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it.
And by everyone, it means every unique individual: the implacable, inimitable,
and irreplaceable you.
#CelebrateDifferences with us for Autism Acceptance Month!
From Autistic individuals who require robust 24/7 support systems to Autistic self-advocates
living fully independent lives, the experiences across the Autism spectrum are myriad.
No one experience is the same as another so we make room for the infinite ways in which
members of the Autism community can be represented.
“Autism Acceptance Month means celebrating all people within the autism spectrum equally! Those who have made significant contributions to society; people who are recognized within their local communities; others that may exceed their personal milestones; and importantly, individuals who struggle with challenges to overcome daily living skills! Autism is definitely a full spectrum and we all deserve respect, love, self–confidence, support, dignity and inclusion in all aspects of life!”
-Darrius Frazier, member of the Autism Society's Council of Autistic Advisors
When we #CelebrateDifferences, we embrace the diversity of needs, abilities, and experiences in the Autism community through acceptance. Together, we can improve opportunities in inclusive education, employment, housing, health care, and long-term services and supports for individuals with Autism, no matter where they are in life’s journey.
Our work is dedicated to all those in the Autism community with the supports, services, resources, advocacy and connections that empower people to live to their fullest. And we can’t do it without you!
