World Autism Awareness Week

What is World Autism Awareness Week?

World Autism Awareness Day is an internationally recognised day that takes place on the 2nd of April every year. Throughout this day thousands of people take part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.

This year World Autism Awareness Week will be taking place from the 1 – 7 April.

Over the years more and more awareness of Autism has been raised, but there is still so much more work to be done to make more people 100% understand what Autism is.

What is Autism?

Autism is a lifelong, developmental disability that affects a person’s communication skills, socialising skills and how they experience the world around them.

An autistic person sees, hears and feels the world differently to other people. Autism is a spectrum condition. All autistic people share certain difficulties but, being autistic will affect them in different ways.


If a person on the autism spectrum is given the right kind of support and level of support they are able to learn and develop. Click Here to learn more.

Throughout the week Rhino Sensory UK will be sharing multi-sensory equipment ideas especially for Autism and, building overall awareness of the support available.
