World Autism Week 26th March – 2nd April

by Alexandra Hooson

Every year, in the week leading up to World Autism Awareness Day (2nd April) members of the public take part in the World Autism Week. This is a full seven days where schools, workplaces, charities and individuals all over the UK are taking part in activities to raise money and awareness for the National Autistic Society.

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