“Autism is...Something you have to know”
In support of 2nd April, “World Autism Awareness Day”, a special day designated by the United Nations General Assembly, Autism Partnership Foundation (APF) organises our annual public education campaign - “Autism Awareness Actions” from late March to late April every year to generate public awareness and acceptance of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). We also launch limited edition masks for charity sale to raise funds for helping underprivileged children with ASD access Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) treatment.
The theme of "Autism Awareness Actions" this year is “Autism is...Something you have to know”. Although there has been quite a lot of discussion on ASD in recent years, the general public know very little about ASD. This is the reason why we still have many misunderstandings and discrimination in society. APF believes that acceptance starts with understanding. Through this campaign, we aim to enhance public awareness of ASD, so as to break down barriers and help people with ASD integrate into society.
