Honestly Autism Day is a day devoted to understanding autism and is presented by the Partnership Project, which is a collaboration of committed volunteers from the Autism Society of Baltimore-Chesapeake,  Baltimore County Public Schools, and the Department of Special Education at Towson University. It is held in April to celebrate Autism Awareness month.  Parents, family members, professionals and people with autism come together to listen, ask questions and learn from each other.  Experienced speakers share their knowledge of vast topics related to autism and individuals with autism give open and honest insight into their lives on the autism spectrum.  It is a positive, uplifting day filled with revelations and shared ideas.
