Get set for the return of Autism Together Awareness Month…

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

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

About autism

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

No two people with autism 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 a fulfilling and meaningful life.
