Every bit of generosity is a step toward a world with absolute inclusiveness.
2019 marks the 12th year of the World Autism Awareness Day.
The varied number of people from all over the place from different background dedicate this day to devote recognition and implicate awareness about people living with autism.
Multiple Autism-friendly bout and informational entertainments to promote realisation, understanding and acceptance towards people with Autism.
Being one of the four days specifically dedicated to health, it is related to the UN observance days.
This day advocates fighting Autism together and negate any sort of discrimination as possible.
“Let us…ensure they have the necessary support to exercise their rights and fundamental freedoms”, says UN Secretary General, António Guterres.
The theme of the year revolves around the topic of “Assistive Technologies, Active Participation”.
This affirmation of the strong commitment to ensure inclusivity and accessibility paves way to the actualisation of yet another Sustainability Development Goals of the United States.
Working alongside that UN Charter and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this year focuses on leveraging the use of assistive technologies for persons with autism.
Few other initiatives are establishing access to affordable assistive technologies and eliminating the barriers to their participation.
Like every other disability, autism is also often framed by societal barriers and is a social responsibility.
However, it’s time we embrace this disability and the people entwined with it like their armour, so it is introduced into a conversation without it being a matter of apologising or sympathising.
Let’s strive to make our Global societies be kinder and better as a part of the diagnosis and break open the numerous stereotypes and stigma like a shattered glass.
