Increasing Awareness, Acceptance, and Inclusivity – from our Board Member, Dr Nurhidayati M Suphan
April is World Autism Month, dedicated to increasing awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder.
The United Nations General Assembly unanimously declared 2nd April as World Autism Awareness Day to highlight the need to improve the quality of life of those with autism, so they can lead full and meaningful lives as an integral part of society.
The autism community needs acceptance, more crucially, from society at large. Acceptance can lead to greater support, which is necessary for autistic people to reach their full potential.
