World Autism Awareness Day is on 2nd April. We all have to spread awareness about it on this day and should work for it as much as we can. People with autism do have behavioral difficulties along with sensory problems and other symptoms which we all need to know, even if we don’t have a child with autism. We all have to join our hands together with the parents who have autistic kids. 

We all as a community need to know everything about Autism so that we can deal with our autistic friends and community members in a right way without differentiating them from other, like one team.

We all talk about diversity and equality that all the people are equal in rights regardless of their skin, color, race, gender, country and religion and this is a great thing, but we also have to practice same way with the people with health and learning difficulties.

So, here in this article I will be sharing some ideas about what we can  do as a community for our autistic fellows, Autism awareness day is not only for things we do for autistic people but also for use to learn about it and to be aware of everything our fellows and their families go through, so, here are some simple ideas which we can do and practice on World Autism Day and we should keep doing it very often throughout the year.

  1. Work with charity who raise money for Autism awareness and everything related with it.
  2. Volunteer at the hospitals, schools and institutes who work for this great cause.
  3. Learn about autism, read books from libraries, google and talk with experts of know more.
  4. It is not necessary to take part in this cause if you have a child with autism, we all can take part in it.
  5. We can voluntarily collect money from friends, families and colleague and give it to the charities, hospitals, schools and other institutes work for Autism.
  6. Talk to the experts to learn about behaving with autistic people.
  7. We can also donate toys and learning tools that can help autistic kids int heir learning and understanding.
  8. Many people wear blue on this day, we can also do that to spread awareness. We can also participate in charity walks so that we can learn and spread awareness about this common problem. This way we all can understand what all autistic kids goes through, so that we can help them in the best way we can. After all, what they need is our love.
  9. You can also collect funds to print leaflets with information about autism and distribute these leaflets everywhere, also mention the best books or source of information people can get about autism on these leaflets.
  10. We all are equal and have to hold hands together to help each other, like World Autism Day, we also have to stay together and joined and work for other causes as well like ADHD, other learning difficulties and problems as well. After all we all are equal as a community.

  1. Hi Sarah!
    Thanks for your post on this important matter.
    I think that everyone can do something to spread awareness about Autism. I will talk with my two kids about it and see if there are some nearby support that can help. If we can’t do anything else we could at least read and learn something about autism so it doesn’t become something that is swept under the carpet.
    Take care!
    Regards, Jan

    • Thank you so much Jan for sharing your comment. I am glad that you find this article useful and want to talk and do something for Autism Awareness. Thank you Once again:)

  2. Another great article, Sarah! I’ll be wearing blue on April 2nd and plan to donate some toys as well. Autism awareness is of great importance these days. Appreciate the information on this. 🙂

    • Hi Tammy, thank you so much not only for your appreciation but also for taking part in donation and spreading awareness about Autism. Thank you once again.

  3. I didn’t know that blue was the color of autism awareness, but that’s cool! It must be so challenging to have a special needs child, I honestly don’t know how parents do it. BUt I guess it comes from love, and only that kind of love you can have for your child!

    • Hi Penelope, thank you for your comments. You are right, Love of parents for their kids makes it possible to do everything for the child with dedication and care.

    • Hi Amar, thank you for your comments on this article. “2nd April is World autism Awareness Day, we all should contribute in this great cause.

  4. Thank you for writing about this movement. I personally know a few teenagers with autism, they are such dear people, with very sweet hearts. I certainly hope more people get to know more about autism.

    • Hi Joo, I know people with autism are very loving and dear people of ours and we have to take care and give them love equally as our own kids and friends. I t is very important to take part in such movements even if we dont have any autistic fellow or child, we all should work like a team.

  5. Being aware of autism is so important. In my years of teaching, I’ve had children with autism in my class. Even though the parents know of the diagnosis, it was hard for them to accept, because they knew little about the behaviors. Having Autism Awareness Day is a wonderful idea for people to learn about the condition.

    • Hi Carol, thank you so much for sharing your views on this post. It is very important to raise awareness for autism and also for other learning problems and health issues. We all should participate in all such activities.

  6. Hi sarah.
    I have worked with autism kids during my college days.. You wont beleive they are so talented and artistic.. Ofcourse thay are soft hearted and kind but they have a unique attachment feelings, they will connect with you very easily if they sense that love from you which they want..I am glad you are awaring people of autism day..

    • Hi Huzefa, thank you so much for your comments. I agree with you, Autistic kids are different but very artistic, intelligent and talented and also very loving. This is the main purpose for me to write articles on Autism and let people know about it.

  7. Autism awareness is very important these days as so many suffer and are not even diagnosed. In fact, here in Britain thee was a TV program on only this week that highlighted the fact that 1 in 10 people are now autistic, or on the spectrum and they don’t even realise or know it.
    And it is definitely a problem that is becoming worse along with ADHD. I work with a medical herbalist who has seen an unprecedented amount of children in the past 2 years with these problems, more than she has ever seen in her 30 years in the job. She blames a lot of it on environmental toxins and heavy metals from pollution and exhaust fumes, certain immunisations etc, which can get into a baby’s brain during early development. These things are very hard to control and stay away from. It’s very sad.
