April 2, World Autism Awareness Day

Autism, or the Autism Spectrum Disorder in its current name, is a neurodevelopmental disorder. It occurs when the neuronal development from the mother’s womb differs from its peers with normal development. The causes of autism can be genetic, environmental or neurological.

We all saw the news of Messi having autism. Even this question was an indication that there was not enough awareness. Because autism is not a disease, it is a difference.

Every year, April 2 is celebrated as the Autism Awareness Day in the world in order to raise awareness about autism. The most important buildings are illuminated with blue light, people are sharing their photos by wearing blue clothes.

We have also prepared a video for the 2 April Autism Awareness Day with the Ozelbeyinler. Because “Autism is not a deficiency but a difference”. We thank everyone who provided support.
