Join us for Autism Acceptance Month…

Get set for the return of Autism Acceptance Month…

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day, but we’ll continue celebrating autism awareness and acceptance for the whole month.

Yes, we’re dedicating the month of April to improving acceptance for autistic people, while fundraising and highlighting the vital work we do at Autism Together.

We’d love you to get involved, in any way you can.

Our 30 day challenge is the perfect opportunity to help keep you active and healthy during the current lockdown, while supporting a great cause and helping to raise autism acceptance throughout April, Autism Acceptance Month.

Choose one of our 2 challenges – either walking or running 54 miles throughout April.

Why 54? Because our organisation started back in 1968 and this year will be our 54th birthday!

Get Active For Autism for schools

We would like you to complete 54 minutes of a chosen activity during the month. How you choose to do this is up to you, it could be hoola-hooping or running around the playground.

About autism

Autism is a hidden disability. You can’t tell someone is autistic by the way they look, but possibly through their behaviours. Autistic people are often misunderstood and may require support with things like communication, interaction with others, using their imagination, being flexible and feeling overwhelmed by activity in the world around them.

No two autistic people are affected the same way, so, at Autism Together we work with each individual to help them overcome or lessen the impact of these difficulties, to help that person lead an interesting and fulfilling life.
