This year’s celebration adopts the theme “Empowerment and Equal Opportunity: Together we can create a kinder and Inclusive World for Persons with Autism.”

Pursuant to Resolution No. 62/139 which was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on December 18, 2007, every 2nd day of April of each year is declared as the “WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAY”.

The observance of this event hopes to create an environment that will allow persons with autism to enjoy productive lives by raising the awareness of the people throughout the society and to inform the public that the causes of disabilities can be prevented and in cases when such disabilities exist, early detection and prompt and appropriate intervention can be performed.
