This week: how Indigenous communities are addressing disability and COVID-19 AND debt cancellation for some borrowers with disabilities, AND a NEW Biden plan to boost home care PLUS we recognize World Autism Day and Autism Acceptance Month in What We’re Reading!
World Autism Day and Autism Acceptance Month
The entire month of April is also designated as Autism Acceptance Month. This annual recognition is not only to make all communities aware of the contribution and value of individuals with autism but also a time in which individuals are encouraged to spread awareness, and promote acceptance understanding that all people live on the bread spectrum of neurodiversity. We are excited to share some wonderful voices of autistic identity and neurodiversity as we spread awareness, promote acceptance, and ignite change.
Celebrating April as Autism Acceptance/Awareness Month!
April is Autism Acceptance Month. During this time we recognize the importance of creating an inclusive society that values neurodiversity, and the benefit that all of us have when we can bring our whole selves to school, work and our community.
