Autism Acceptance Month

Autism Acceptance Month

It is not something we can ignore or find a cure for, but it is something we can learn from the experiences of others who live with it every day. Many remarkable people have faced prejudice from the outside world as children. But it didn’t make them less human. Autism Acceptance month helps us to see that, while we may face some challenges, people with autism face many of the same issues as us. The Society for Autism helped to create Section 504 of Sections 504 of the Disability Act to recognize and protect people with autism. Their campaigns began in the 1970’s and continue today. Autism Acceptance Month was created to foster a better understanding among those with autism. Autism’s face is not fixed. There are many ways it can present. There are many ways autism can manifest. The face of autism is not fixed. An Autism Awareness Ribbon, a ribbon featuring a multicolored jigsaw design that represents the complexity and challenges of autism, can be purchased to fund research and to celebrate your achievements living with autism.

The event is ongoing.
