In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. April is known as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.
Join the Autism Society in getting involved with the autism community.
Put on the Puzzle! The Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon is the most recognized symbol of the autism community in the world. Autism is now recognized as the most common neurological disorder affecting children and one of the most common developmental disabilities in Canada. Show your support for people with autism by wearing the Autism Puzzle Ribbon- as a pin on your shirt, a magnet on your car, a badge on your blog, or even your Facebook profile picture- and educate folks on the potential of people with autism!
