World Autism Awareness Week 1-7 April 2019
World Autism Awareness Week
1 - 7 April 2019
It is World Autism Week next week and The National Autistic Society are campaigning to raise awareness of autism worldwide. If you would like to support the campaign, please visit the NAS website for details: https://www.autism.org.uk/get-involved/world-autism-awareness-week.aspx In school we are raising awareness during assemblies and through Tutor Time activities.
This year is the 10th Anniversary of the Autism Act and the NAS have worked hard to improve the lives of adults with autism and their families. Last year the government stated the act will be extended to children, which is very positive step forward. The government are also reviewing the autism strategy, so if you would like to share your experiences of autism services or support, please complete the survey https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/OB5OB/ by 7th April.
