International Autism Acceptance Year 2012-2013

International Autism Acceptance Year


The year 2012-2013 has just been declared International Autism Acceptance Year.

International Autism Acceptance Year will run from April 2, 2012- April 2, 2013, plus all of April 2013 will be good for even more Autism Acceptance events and activities.


Several reasons for declaring an International Year of something in almost the middle of the year:


1. I just now had the idea.

2. Declaring it now will leave International Autism Acceptance Year where it belongs- in the Autistic community and the community of our supporters.
3. People I know, including Autistic friends, parents of children on the spectrum, are still being exposed to a barrage of "devastating disorder" rhetoric. Our work has just begun.


More info coming soon.
