World Autism Awareness Day 

In 2007, the United Nations (UN) designated April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day, aligning with its mission to advance equal rights and opportunities worldwide. 

This day serves as a platform to foster appreciation for and honour individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Autism, a neurological condition, typically emerges in early childhood and transcends gender and race. ASD manifests diversely among individuals, impacting learning approaches and social interactions. Unfortunately, misconceptions often lead to discrimination against those with autism, hindering their access to opportunities.

Educators play a crucial role in promoting inclusivity by dispelling myths and providing accurate information about autism. Throughout the month, organisations like Autism Belize will be focusing on sharing stories, providing opportunities to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism, and fostering support.
