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.

  1. What's with the 'One Autistic Brat is Enough'-friendly Logo - not a good look - one or more children to be added please :-)

  2. John, not sure what you mean at all. Please let me know. If it is the logo here, I think it is a heterosexual family with one child of indiscriminate age. Nothing else is meant by the logo. It's supposed to be a family, and the number of children, one, is enough to symoblize the idea of "family" which is supposed to symbolize "acceptance of a bunch of people."
