It’s Autism Awareness Day!

People all over the country are wearing blue today (2nd April 2020) to raise awareness of autism, and the needs of people with this diagnosis. At The Speech Centre we have come to know many individuals and families with autism over the years, and we see the joy and frustration that people with autism experience when they encounter the different levels of public awareness. Hopefully this Autism Awareness Day will help our communities develop a more positive, accepting and inclusive culture.
