DDS Honors Autism Awareness, Acceptance and Advocacy Month 2022
April is Autism Awareness Month! Let's work together to raise autism acceptance in our communities now that so many of us are aware of Autism Spectrum Disorder. DDS promotes peer acceptance, inclusion, awareness and acceptance for the people suffering from Autism. Every April, we celebrate the month to build an inclusive community where autistic individuals are embraced and supported to achieve the highest quality of life possible. Awareness is more about accepting the reality of things and that is equally true for Autism.
With the autism diagnosis rate increasing fast, we take these 30 days to celebrate the differences of, and empower individuals facing autism. Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a developmental disorder. We have a number of intellectual leaders with Asperger's Syndrome that built modern civilization. Some of the great personalities are Leonardo Di Vinci, Albert Einstein, Mozart, Bill Gates, Emily Dickinson, Mark Twain, Michelangelo, Hans Christian Andersen, Tim Burton, Vincent Van Gogh, Stanley Kubrick, Charles Darwin, Thomas Jefferson, Steve Jobs, Franz Kafka, Alfred Kinsey, Lewis Carroll, James Joyce, Sir Isaac Newton, Nikola Tesla, Elon Musk, Andy Warhol, H.G. Wells, Dan Aykroyd, David Byrne, George Orwell, Michael Jackson, Thomas Edison, Greta Thunberg, Alfred Hitchcock, Lionel Messi, Jim Henson, Daryl Hannah, Bobby Fischer, Anthony Hopkins, Beethoven, Henry Ford, Carl Sagan, Friedrich Nietzsche and Jane Austen.*
DDS stands with the policy of inclusion and respecting the differences laying great importance to the mental health causes. The most radical act you can perform as an ally to Autistic people is to accept them exactly as they are. Organizations like the Autism Society Los Angeles hold fundraising events to spread awareness, celebrate, and generate funds. Feel free to Donate. Let's learn about the history of Autism, support Autism-Friendly Businesses and Employers, spread kindness and awareness in community and light the world BLUE!
