Ways to Celebrate Autism
To raise awareness and show support for the beautiful, smart, and unique individuals living with autism, we’ve put together some helpful ways to celebrate autism with friends, family and in your community every day of the year!
Keep learning and educating
Whether it’s a walk, virtual webinar, or fundraiser, express your support and attend events that raise awareness, insist on acceptance, or fund research for autism.
Raise awareness by organizing your own autism awareness campaign or educate others through helpful tools and resources. Make a poster, send an email, or host a lunch and learn to talk about your knowledge of/experience with autism!
Through these acts of support, we create communities that embrace and accept people with autism.
Thank the people who have made a difference in the life of individuals with autism
Whether it’s a teacher, DSP, social worker, or therapist, let them know how much they mean to you and what a difference they make in the lives of so many individuals with autism every day.
If you are a professional working with someone who has autism, know that you are truly appreciated!
Get social and stay engaged!
Spend time with a friend or family member who has autism
Visit a local park, play a game, call them on the phone or just hang out at home! Spending time with a friend or family member who has autism will bring them so much joy and they’ll appreciate you taking time out to be with them (even if it’s virtually)!
