Autism Acceptance Month
On April 1st, we will celebrate the start of Autism Acceptance Month. It is an opportunity to reach out to a greater audience and educate, advocate, and support the Autism community. Connect with us to learn about ways to get involved, share your story with the hashtag #CelebrateDifferences, and join us at an upcoming event to spread acceptance! Acceptance and inclusion are critical to ensuring everyone in the Autism community can access what they need to live to their fullest extent possible. This is vital to improving opportunities in inclusive education, employment, housing, health care, and long-term services and supports for individuals with Autism, no matter where they are in life’s journey.
Autism Society Greater Hudson Region’s mission is to promote lifelong opportunities for people on the autism spectrum and their families and create connections empowering everyone in the Autism community with the resources needed to live fully. 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.
