Ways to support Autism after April.

Since the past 10 years, April is celebrated as the Autism Awareness Month. Usually, during the whole month, there is a lot of advocacy and awareness campaigns about autism. But usually, all the inspiration goes away with April.
Autism has got the limelight in the last few years, however, still, a large segment of society is unaware of it. Autism awareness is primary and is driven by acceptance. Most people get to know the A- word once someone close to them had it. Now when it’s widespread acknowledging the existence won’t do much, we need to take a broader step towards understanding how autism feels like. So, here we are sharing few ways by which you can support autism even after the month is over.

Educate
Don’t keep yourself restricted to acknowledging the fact that a thing like autism exists. Seek information and get to know more about it by talking to someone who has it. The knowledge that comes with exposure has more impact. To understand autism there is a basic rule you assume nothing and ask everything.

Acceptance
Accept autistic people for who they are. They have different minds but are very bright and if given a chance they can make a huge difference. The world is filled up with differences and we need to embrace them.
Actively Advocate

Advocate for autistic people not just because they need it but because it’s our responsibility to include everyone in the society. Learn about it and share stories to impart knowledge. Actively indulge in all this even after April is gone. Use whatever platform is accessible to you to advocate for those on a spectrum.
Empower the change and let’s do this together.
