Autism Awareness Month

Autism Awareness Month is a month-long observance focused on raising awareness about autism spectrum disorders, what it means to be autistic, how to support autistic people, and the difficulties and discrimination that autistic people face. Observance of the month often involves educational events and ways to show support for autistic people and their families. Note: Some autistic people and advocates object to the focus of Autism Awareness Month and some of the organizations that promote it. In particular, they criticize the goals of some organizations as ableist due to the perception that they treat autistic and other neurodivergent people as needing to be cured. Some instead observe the month as Autism Acceptance Month. Sometimes, the month is called World Autism Month.  When is Autism Awareness Month? Autism Awareness Month is observed during the month of April.
