Autism Acceptance Month in Montgomery County
April is Autism Acceptance month and there are special events and programs happening all across the county, including virtual and outdoor activities.
This year, the Bethesda based Autism Society is asking the public to switch from saying “autism awareness”, to “autism acceptance”. They recently stated, “the shift in the use of terminology aims to foster acceptance to ignite change through improved support and opportunities in education, employment, accessible housing, affordable health care and comprehensive long-term services.”
Details are below and you can view the full schedule here.
