On April 2, 2014 schools across Ontario will join community leaders in raising the flag for the second annual World Autism Awareness Day.
In 2013, as a means of formally recognizing World Autism Awareness Day, Autism Ontario, in partnership with Bank of Montreal (BMO), along with a passionate group of parents, community members, advocates and professionals, helped over 300 Ontario cities and towns participate and raise 500 flags in support of autism awareness.
Because of the overwhelming success of the first annual Raise the Flag celebration in 2013, Autism Ontario is expanding its campaign this year to include both elementary and secondary schools across Ontario. To help make our schools a friendlier place for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Autism Ontario has provided an education package that helps create an understanding of autism and how students can support their fellow peers. They can be obtained onlinehere
