Autism Awareness Day 2016

On 2 April 2016 iconic buildings across Australia and around the world turn their lights blue for the United Nations World Autism Awareness Day. You can use #LIUB to share your experience on social media.

Autism organisations around the world celebrate World Autism Awareness Day with fundraising events, while many Autism associations are holding awareness-raising events all throughout April. This year’s UN theme is “Autism and the 2030 Agenda: Inclusion and Neurodiversity”.

Autism is a neurological condition that affects among other things the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people. The main areas of difficulty are in social communication, social interaction and restricted or repetitive behaviours and interests.
