Dress Differently

Today the 8th of April is Dress Differently Day for Autism QLD.  Most of us take forgranted the seemingly simple skills of social interaction, communication or adaptation to our changing environments, but for a person with Autism these things can be challenging and life altering struggles. Dress Differently Day is aiming to let anyone experience  how every day kids with Autism are seeing and experiencing the world differently.

World Autism Awareness Day

Today, the 2nd of April, is World Autism Awareness Day. Internationally celebrated, this day serves to raise awareness of Autism and its effects, and highlight the need to improve the lives of those on the Spectrum. Autism is a lifelong disability, which can have a significant impact on many aspects of the lives of ASD sufferers, their families, and communities. Approximately 1 in 160 children in Australia are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

Light it up Blue for Autism

Autism QLD is celebrating Autism Awareness Month this month, and it kicks off with Light it up Blue for Autism Day today, April 1st, as part of a wider initiative which will see landmarks worldwide turning blue for Autism Awareness. Currently in Australia approximately 1 in 160 children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders. There is no known cause, and no cure. Light it up Blue for Autism is inspiring hope! The Storey Bridge in Brisbane and the Sydney Harbour Bridge are just two of the famous landmarks which will be lit up blue for this great cause.
