The eleventh annual World Autism Awareness Day is Monday, April 2.
Every April, Autism Speaks kicks off World Autism Month beginning with UN-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day. Those supporting the cause are asked to wear blue on that day.
Joined by the international community, hundreds of thousands of landmarks, people, buildings, homes and communities around the world, all in light blue to recognition people living with autism. Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place all month to increase understanding and acceptance and foster worldwide support.
