All Day: All Day (Time Zone Sensitive)

The United Nations World Autism Awareness Day is an opportunity to highlight the need to help improve the quality of life of children and adults who are affected by autism, so that they can lead full and meaningful lives. The 2019 edition will focus on the theme "Assistive Technologies, Active Participation".

See the United Nations website for further information.

Here on the Better Internet for Kids (BIK) portal, we’ll be looking at possible resources to help children and young people with autism to engage safely with the online world in support of the day. Come back nearer the time to read more.

And if you’re marking the day in some way linked to the Better Internet for Kids agenda, why not share an article with us - see our content contribution guidelines, or get in touch for more information.
