World Autism Awareness Week

World Autism Awareness Week ran from 27 March to 2 April 2015.

This year we had a whole week of activities that people got involved in to stand out for autism! From Onesie Wednesday™ to pink and purple bake-offs, there was something for everyone.

An article in The Independent tells more about autism awareness:

As a nation we think we understand autism. Since the first discovery of the condition just over 70 years ago awareness of autism has continued to grow. Despite this, 87 per cent of people affected by autism think the general public has a bad understanding of the condition.

Many of the common myths surrounding autism have been debunked – including the perception that people with autism can’t hold a job. But only 15 per cent of adults in the UK with autism are in full-time employment, while 61 per cent of people with autism currently not in employment say they want to work.

If there’s an awareness day campaign you would like to see added to the calendar, please email campaign@bristol-marketing.com.
