APRIL, AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH
The month of April is a special moment to inform the public and increase awareness regarding autism and other autism spectrum disorders. It also represents an opportunity to overcome prejudices, which are the main obstacle to the integration of those people in the community.
2019 AUTISM MONTH CALENDAR
This year, Autisme Montréal has decided to implement an awareness campaign with the theme: A Different Look. The goal of this campaign is to better inform the public at large, overcome prejudices and therefore have a different look.
