Autism Awareness Day 2020 April 2nd
Autism Awareness Day is observed every year on April 2nd in order to raise public awareness of autism. Now that 1 in 54 children are diagnosed with Autism each year, it is important to support and accept these members of our community for the wonderful contributions they bring.
