April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day. The day recognizes and spreads awareness for the rights of people with autism.
Every April, the entire world celebrates World Autism Month. It begins on April 2 with World Autism Awareness Day, which is also recognized by the United Nations.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO) every 160th child in the world has Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The seriousness of the ASD problem is not underestimated by world leaders, who have set a goal of eliminating it by 2030. This is why they have declared World Autism Awareness Day to raise awareness of the issues caused by the disorder.
SUNRISE LEARNING will be sharing stories and giving chances to enhance understanding and acceptance of persons with autism throughout the month, creating domestic and global support.

This year, we’re working to make the world a better place for people with autism by ensuring that they may achieve their full potential.
There is no better way to honor this day than by understanding the characteristics of people who have this condition. And how we can all do more to improve our own understanding and spread kindness.
WHAT IS THE THEME OF AUTISM AWARENESS DAY 2022?
“Inclusive Quality Education for All” is the theme of World Autism Awareness Day 2021. This year’s World Autism Awareness Day is being commemorated by the Department of Community Development. There are plans to implement a new equal rights policy soon. Health and social welfare, education, employment, and inclusive and equipped communities are all part of their plan.
WHAT IS AUTISM?
Autism is a lifelong neurological condition that begins in early childhood and affects people of all genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
The phrase “Autism Spectrum Disorder” refers to a group of symptoms. Appropriate help, accommodation, and acceptance of this neurological variety enable people on the Spectrum to take part fully and effectively in society.
Autism is prevalent in all parts of the world, and a lack of knowledge has a significant impact on individuals, their families, and communities.
Stigmatization and prejudice associated with neurological impairments continue to be significant barriers to diagnosis and treatment, an issue that must be addressed by both developing and donor countries.

FACTS FOR AUTISM AWARENESS
1. Although the specific cause of Autism is not fully understood, it is said to be associated with genes & even environmental factors (like antenatal exposure to pollutant toxins or chemicals). And so, there is no specific “cure” for this condition.
But there are brilliant interventional strategies available to skill train children & adults with autism. By being informed & aware, we can assist others in contacting doctors & psychologists and initiating holistic intervention that will improve the developmental learning & skill development of autistic children.
2. Boys are more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls.
3. An Early diagnosis can be quite beneficial. Autism can be diagnosed as young as two years old, and holistic early intervention offers the best chance of supporting wellbeing.
3. Autism also has several coexisting conditions. Children with autism are more likely than non-autistic children to have anxiety and stress issues, persistent sleep problems, gut problems, and more.
4. Being unique is fantastic! People with autism spectrum disorders can make a difference in the world – all they need is the right kind of skill training and sensory-friendly environmental support to be successful.
WHY WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY IS IMPORTANT?
Autism Awareness Day is a REMINDER to the world, so everyone gets an opportunity to learn, read, hear and know about autism.
Begin with understanding, accepting, and appreciating.
By being informed, we can assist others in contacting doctors and initiating therapy that will improve their health.
The ultimate goal is to comprehend their worldview and performance rather than attempting to change them.
