The World Celebrates Autism

Autism is a ubiquitous part of my life, and maybe yours as well. If not, your life is still full of cool things that matter and affect you daily.

Also, celebrations and traditions are important.

We’ve gotten away from rituals as a way to stay connected to each other and the planet. At least, that’s what it feels like in my life.

I’m happy to report that I’ve found some ways that people across the globe are celebrating autism this month. You’ll find links to celebrations below, and I’d love to invite you to add any you’d like to share in the comments.
