Every year on 2nd April, world autism day is observed. It is observed globally so that understanding about autism can be cultivated, and people can learn how to be kind towards disabled individuals in general.
The United Nations general assembly in the year 2007 declared 2nd April as the world autism awareness day. It was done to highlight how living with autism is and highlight the fact that their quality of life needs to be improved as they are a part of society and have the right to lead a meaningful life.
Individuals who have autism are highly dependent upon their families/support system/ and various other networks. This means the need of the hour is that each individual and every individual come together to meet their needs.
History of world autism day
2nd April was declared as world autism day by the United nations general assembly resolution. It was passed on 1st November 2007 in the council and was adopted as the world autism awareness day on 18th December 2007.
Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned, Consort of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar’s State, proposed the united nations for declaring a designated day as world autism day, and the member of every state-supported their proposal. World autism day is one of the seven health-specific days designated by the UN.
What is autism?
A neurodevelopmental disorder that is characterized by defects in communications is known as autism. Another pattern in autism is repetitive behaviour and restricted interests.
The wide range of abilities in individuals with autism varies from person to person. Some can’t speak, some have a limited amount of verbal communication, and verbal communication is delayed in some people.
 Some individuals with autism have impaired cognitive thinking; on the other hand, some have gifted abilities.
The spectrum is so vast that individuals cant be restrictive to one, which is why a little kindness and understanding of their behaviour is very important.
