It's Autism Acceptance Month!

It’s Autism Acceptance Month!

The Autism Society of Baltimore-Chesapeake believes that acceptance is creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it. And by everyone, it means every unique individual: the implacable, inimitable, and irreplaceable you.

#CelebrateDifferences with us for Autism Acceptance Month!

From Autistic individuals who require robust 24/7 support systems to Autistic self-advocates living fully independent lives, the experiences across the Autism spectrum are myriad. No one experience is the same as another so we make room for the infinite ways in which members of the Autism community can be represented.

That’s why we love #CelebrateDifferences. Because no matter who you are, you are the only you there is… celebrate with us!

When we #CelebrateDifferences, we embrace the diversity of needs, abilities, and experiences in the Autism community through acceptance. Together, we can improve opportunities in inclusive education, employment, housing, health care, and long-term services and supports for individuals with Autism, no matter where they are in life’s journey.

At the Autism Society, every day is Autism Acceptance Day. Our work is dedicated to all those in the Autism community with the supports, services, resources, advocacy and connections that empower people to live to their fullest. And we can’t do it without you!
