Children's Service Autism Awareness Week Activities
Post date: Mar 29, 2021 2:26:59 PM
World Autism Awareness Week 2021 is taking place 29 March – 4 April.
The last year has been incredibly hard for everyone but for some autistic children, young people and their families it’s been a nightmare due to the changing routines, high levels of anxiety and general disruption to everyday life.

Friday 2nd April
For World Autism Awareness Week 2021 we’d like the children and young people to explain in their way what it’s like being autistic. This could be done by drawing, crafts, poetry, writing, a short film, photos of projects i.e. Minecraft, gaming, general sharing of their interests. Everyone who takes part will get a certificate. Every autistic person is different and while they may experience some challenges, they also have many strengths and talents that we’d love to celebrate.
Please just add submissions under our Facebook post or email them to firstname.lastname@example.org for us to share (with permission of course)
