World Autism Awareness Day 2017

As part of a long-running awareness campaign to be launched on World Autism Awareness Day 2017, Autism-Europe will be focusing on the theme “Break barriers together for autism – Let’s build an accessible society”.

Autistic people and their families face many barriers to enjoying their full rights. The aim of this campaign is not only to understand what barriers to inclusion autistic people are up against, but also to identify how we all, as a society, can work together to overcome and remove them.

 

The campaign toolkit

The campaign toolkit explains the idea behind the theme and outlines in detail how and when you can support the campaign in whichever way you prefer.

The toolkit bring together recommendations on how you too can be part of our mission to make people more aware of these barriers, and to build momentum in pushing for their removal. 

The toolkit also offers links to all the resources you will need to help us spread the word about the importance of fostering a better understanding of what accessibility means for people on the autism spectrum (flyers, logos, images, posters, social media images and guides, infographics, etc.).

 

We hope you will join us and that, together, we can foster a better understanding of what accessibility means for people on the autism spectrum.
