World Autism Awareness Day - April 2nd

Wear blue in support of World Autism Awareness Day!  Let’s make York Region a sea of blue.

April 2nd, 2017 marks the 9th anniversary of the very first World Autism Awareness Day.  In 2007 this date was declared by the United Nations General Assembly, in order to bring the world’s attention to Autism, a spectrum disorder that affects tens of millions globally.

On October 23, 2012, a World Autism Awareness Day bill was passed by members of the House of Commons in Canada which officially recognizes April 2nd as World Autism Awareness Day in Canada.

The York Region District School Board will be celebrating World Autism Awareness Day on Monday, April 3rd, 2017.

A number of resources are available to support and celebrate World Autism Awareness Day:
