Autism Acceptance Month

What is Autism Acceptance?


We asked our guests at the 22nd Annual Soiree for Autism – “What is Autism Acceptance?”.

Their answers remind us that Autism acceptance means many things. We #CelebrateDifferences each April to highlight the many ways we are unique and the numerous ways Autism can be represented. Watch as our community members share what it means to create space, invite new perspectives, and share lived experience.

This April, the Autism Society Greater Hudson Region is excited to join Autism Society of America to continue its sixth annual #CelebrateDifferences campaign in honor of Autism Acceptance Month. 

Autism Acceptance Month

As the nation’s oldest leading grassroots Autism organization, the Autism Society of America and its 70+ local affiliates serve over half a million members of the Autism community each year. We envision a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it – including education, advocacy efforts, and supports and services throughout the lifespan. 

When we #CelebrateDifferences, we embrace the diversity of needs, abilities, and experiences in the Autism community through acceptance. The experiences across the Autism spectrum are varied and unique. From Autistic individuals requiring 24/7 fully supported care, to Autistic adults living fully independent lives, no one experience is the same as another. The Autism Society Greater Hudson Region recognizes the infinite ways in which members of the Autism community can be represented.
