The twelfth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2. This year Darwin High School will be participating in an 8-day walking challenge and host a BBQ, fundraising to raise awareness for this important cause.
It is estimated that 1 in 70 people are on the ASD spectrum and it impacts the way these people are able to understand the world around them. World Autism Awareness Day aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism face every day and to celebrate the unique talents of those with autism.
