April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day

Go Blue from April 2 to increase greater understanding, acceptance and inclusion of people on the autism spectrum.

Autism is a complex, lifelong developmental disability that affects a person’s ability to communicate, interact with others and cope in everyday situations. The cause of autism is not fully understood, but structured early intervention, therapy and education delivered by professionals with expertise in autism can make a significant difference.

We acknowledge that Australia has come a long way in raising awareness about autism but there’s still more to be done. During April, Autism Queensland asks our supporters to raise funds to help us support people living with autism.

You can read more about Autism and how to identify it on the Go Blue for Autism information sheet shown on the right or visit the official Go Blue for Autism website.
