The Date of Autism Acceptance Day

We have been having some lively conversations on various forums about changing the date for Autism Acceptance Day. Some people like April 1, which was the original date. Some people are VERY MUCH against the idea of April 1. At least one person has suggested April 3, which avoids having it on April Fools' Day and also avoids having it on a day that was picked by other groups (who were probably trying to avoid April Fools' Day). While the verdict is not yet in, the date might get changed. In the meantime, enjoy Autism Acceptance Day activities and conversation on April 1, 2, 3, and every other day in Autism Acceptance Month.
