Autism Sunday – Which is also known as International Day of Prayer for Autism and Asperger Syndrome. #AutismSunday #AutismSpeaks
Autism Sunday is held the Second Sunday in February.
This holiday for those with Autism was first held in 2002 in the United Kingdom and held at St Paul’s Cathedral in London. It was initiated by parents and carers Ivan Corea and Charika Corea, founders of the Autism Awareness Campaign UK.
Right now, no word on it being celebrated in the United States, but I say we can! Maybe we can get our governors or the President to make a proclamation for it.
