April 2, 2011 is World Autism Awareness Day

On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly declared April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD). On this day each year, we raise awareness about autism, encourage early diagnosis and early intervention, and recognize the high rate of autism in children in all regions of the world and the consequent developmental challenges.

By bringing together autism organizations all around the world, we will give a voice to the millions of individuals worldwide who are undiagnosed, misunderstood and looking for help. Please join us in our effort to inspire compassion, inclusion and hope.
