April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, a day to celebrate the diversity and inclusion of people on the autism spectrum.
Autism is a developmental condition that affects how people communicate, interact, and perceive the world. According to the World Health Organization, one in 160 children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
Why is it important to raise awareness about autism?
Crazy to think tomorrow is the last day of March for 2023 which only means Saturday is the start of the April Autism Awareness Month and this Sunday, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day…..who’s joining me in wearing blue on Sunday to bring awareness to autism?

Many people with autism face challenges daily, such as stigma, discrimination, and lack of access to education, health care, and employment opportunities.
Raising awareness about autism can help to reduce these barriers and promote the rights and dignity of people with autism.
It can also foster a more supportive and understanding society that values the contributions and potential of people with autism.
Autism is not a disability; it's a different ability.
At the end of every month, a new month begins with new hope. This April month, we begin with the hope of celebrating the difference of minds by accepting and appreciating autism. World Autism Awareness Day, April 2, 2023 pic.twitter.com/LClI4mrmt3
