World Autism Acceptance Week

World Autism Acceptance Week

World Autism Acceptance Week, kick-starting on April 2nd until April 8th 2024, aligns with World Autism Awareness Day, and is a whole week dedicated to spotlighting the diversity, challenges and strengths of autistic people all over the world. The mission? To promote more unity, acceptance and understanding of those living life on the Spectrum.

During the week, there’s a lot of emphasis on the challenges faced by autistic people everywhere. For instance, only 26% of autistic students feel happy at school, and just 29% are employed. What’s more, 70% of autistic people experience mental health issues, with over 150,000 in the UK waiting for assessments. These stats underscore the need for tailored support and better inclusion in health, education, and employment. This is a time to break down barriers and create more support and opportunities for autistic people.
