WAAW your Way!
World Autism Acceptance Week 28 - 3 April 2022
It’s back and bigger than ever before! It’s World Autism Acceptance Week and this year we’re celebrating by getting moving for Ambitious about Autism.
Did you know, at least 1 in 100 people in the UK have an autism diagnosis?
Unfortunately, due to a lack of understanding around autism, 4 out of 5 young autistic people have mental health conditions, leaving them feeling isolated and vulnerable.
This April is World Autism Acceptance Month (WAAM) and at Ambitious about Autism, we want to encourage people to not just be aware, to be accepting.
Are you ambitious about making a change for autistic young people? Then join us – move, walk, run, and have some fun!
It’s simple -10,000 steps or 10k done your way over the course of a week. Make day-to-day changes to be more active such as ‘walk and talk’ meetings. Head to the park for a run, go further on your dog walk, dance the night away, or go on a family hike. The possibilities are endless.
