A day to get attention
Every April 2 is the world day for Autism Awareness, but you know why it is celebrated?
This day was decreed by the United Nations, with the aim of facilitating the integration and quality of life of children and adults with autism spectrum disorder. It is a day, where families, friends and people with autism, ask for help to remove the barriers that prevent the integration of our children, youth and adults with Autism.
AUTISM IS A THING FOR ALL
Autism is a different way of seeing and understanding the world. But achieving a society that understands it is necessary to adopt measures such as:
- An effective Accessibility Law.
- That the needs of people with autism are taken into account.
- That the barriers that people with autism encounter in their day-to-day are removed.
WHAT IS AUTISM?
