World Autism Awareness Month
During World Autism Awareness Month in April, Autism NI run a number of awareness campaigns to grow knowledge and understanding of Autism throughout Northern Ireland. Due to the increase of diagnosis figures, this is an important exercise Autism NI carries out every year. Here are some of the ways you can get involved this year!
Can your school support us this Autism Awareness Month?
We are asking primary schools across Northern Ireland to take part in our Sponsored Silence challenge on 3rd April 2017 and discover the communication barriers that children with Autism face every day.
- Every pupil in your school will have a chance to participate as teachers will assign a time on Monday 3rd April 2017 in which pupils must stay silent for one hour.
- Each pupil will also receive a sponsor sheet (provided by Autism NI) where they can raise money and even have a chance to win Autism awareness merchandise for their fundraising efforts.
To request a sponsorship pack, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02890401729 (Option 3)
