Autistic Pride Day 2017

June 18, 2017 in the World

Autistic Pride Day is is a celebration of the neurodiversity of people on the autism spectrum held on June 18, 2017. The day is celebrated annually and “Autistic pride” stands for pride in autism, about shifting views of autism from "disease" to "difference". It observes the diversity various neurological types express.

Autism is a disorder of neural development characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. Parents usually notice signs in the first two years of their child's life. In June 2005, some organizations launched the first annual Autistic Pride Day, with events around the world. Autistic pride asserts that autistic people are not sick; rather, they have a unique set of characteristics that provide them many rewards and challenges, not unlike their non-autistic peers.

Autistic Pride Day is an Aspies for Freedom initiative, an autism rights group that aims to educate the general public with initiatives to end ignorance of the issues involving the autistic community. Every year there is a main theme for the Autistic Pride Day, like it was “Acceptance not cure” in 2005, “Perspectives, not fear” in 2010 and “Recognize, Respect, Include” in 2011.
