OurAutismCrew: This April, for World Autism Awareness Day, Autism Awareness Australia is celebrating everyone that makes up our wonderful autism community!
From the incredible individuals on the spectrum, to the families and friends who love them, the educators, employers, medical and health professionals who support them… we all have #OurAutismCrew.
To join in, submit a photo of someone, or everyone, in your crew and explain why they’re so special to you. You can nominate yourself, a child, a sibling, mum or dad, a grandparent, teacher, therapist, doctor, mentor… anyone who is part of your inner circle. It’s an opportunity to recognise and celebrate them and the positive impact they’ve had in your life. The submissions will be shared across social media pages from 2nd to 12th April so make sure to follow Autism Awareness Australia on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to see yours! Submissions are open from 18th March to 12th April.
