Hello AIA families,
Happy April, a.k.a World Autism Month!
What is World Autism Month?
April is World Autism Month, and April 2nd is the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. Throughout the month, there is a worldwide effort to spread Autism awareness, acceptance, and inclusion. April is a month of empowering others, fostering understanding, and igniting change to help individuals with Autism reach their full potential and achieve a world characterized by a genuine appreciation of the unique aspects of all people.
