Although every day we campaign for understanding and acceptance of autism, World Autism Acceptance Week is a chance for us to reach out further and highlight the importance of increasing knowledge around autism as we try to make the world a better place for people with autism.

This year, in World Autism Acceptance Week and on World Autism Awareness Day we have a whole host of events to help us to reach our goal of enhancing the lives of autistic people:

Silly Sock Day

Join in one of our biggest annual fundraisers and help us reach our goal of raising £10,000 for our charity. Wear your brightest, silliest socks for the day in return for a donation to Autism Anglia.

‘In this 1 hour free webinar taking place on World Autism Acceptance Day we will be joined by special guest speakers Claire Giles and Kierran Pearce as they discuss the popular, and ever growing, subject ‘Mental Health and Autism’. The webinar will raise awareness of mental health in autism, how someone’s mental health may be affected by communication and socialising, whilst we also look at anxiety, depression, OCD, and less known conditions such as Emotional Intensity Disorder. The webinar will be packed with information, as well as time throughout to ask questions and share experiences” CLICK HERE TO BOOK
