World Autism Awareness Day

Th theme for this year’s World Autism Awareness Day is Inclusion in the Workplace: Challenges and Opportunities in a Post-Pandemic World

The Covid-19 pandemic has increased existing problems especially income, wealth distribution, access to health care, protection under the law, and political inclusion. Persons with autism have been facing many of these inequalities since long. World Autism Awareness Day 2021 is a UN (United Nations) observance that will address these issues faced by people during the pandemic situation.

  • Autism is not a disability, it’s a different ability—Stuart Duncan
  • Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid—Albert Einstein
  • Autism, like a rainbow, has a bright side and a dark side and even though it can mean rough weather, it can be beautiful!—Stuart Duncan
  • I am different, not less—Temple Grandin
  • Don’t think that there’s a different, better child ‘hiding’ behind the autism. This is your child. Love the child in front of you. Encourage his strengths, celebrate his quirks, and improve his weaknesses, the way you would with any child—Claire LaZebnik
  • Hope is the greatest thing for moms of autism. Hope is what gets us out of bed in the morning. I’m on a mission to tell parents that there is a way—Jenny McCarthy
  • Autism is defined by looking at behaviors. And everybody looks at behaviors differently—John Donvan
  • Not everything that steps out of line, and thus “abnormal”, must necessarily be “inferior”—Hans Asperger
