Thursday, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.  And while social distancing effects how Autism Ontario marks the event, it does not change the meaning and significance.

“Instead of our friends celebrating World Autism Awareness Day by meeting together to raise the flag across the province, we are encouraging them to celebrate the day safely with their own families with virtual activities that will mark the occasion,” said Margaret Spoelstra, Executive Director, Autism Ontario.  

You are invited to take part in our virtual flag raising and a flag colouring contest (with prizes!). Looking for more events to keep your family engaged and together while social distancing? Check out our list of educational and fun activities and keep an eye out for upcoming webinars, support groups, and interactive online events that we’ll be announcing in the upcoming weeks.

“It’s on days like when we raise our flag, that we as a community come together and collectively develop awareness, acceptance, understanding, and create a stronger community,” said Spoelstra. “We’re inspired by the parents and families who have led the way in raising hundreds of flags every year across Ontario.”

Don’t forget to follow us on social media. Use #RaisetheFlagforAutism to share your own activities with us and other members of the Autism Ontario family! 

We look forward to connecting with you on April 2nd and in the weeks to come!
