World Autism Month

What is World Autism Month

April is World Autism Month, an annual opportunity for a dedicated conversation about autism spectrum disorder and those it touches – more than 70 million people globally. Autism Speaks invites friends and neighbors around the world to come together to pledge to go blue to increase global understanding and acceptance of people with autism, on World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) and throughout the month of April.
