This week sees the start of April and on Thursday it is World Autism Awareness Day. We are inviting families in our school community to come together through a shared theme to celebrate World Autism Awareness Day. Our theme is ‘Superheroes’. We are very fortunate to have many friends with autism in our school community so we hope, that if you are in a position to do so, you will join is marking the day.
Here is a video we made to promote our celebration ‘World Autism Awareness Day’.
This short film called ‘Amazing Things Happen’ by Alexander Amelines also offers a great understanding of Autism:
Secondly, we have two suggested activities that children might like to engage in to mark the day. (Resources are attached below)
1. Younger children might like to decorate their own mask.
2. Older children might like to create their own super-hero comic book.
children are free to use their own imagination and celebrate in their own unique way using a superhero theme. This can be as simple or as elaborate as you choose!
We are asking member of the school community to send us photographs of how they marked World Autism Awareness Day to firstname.lastname@example.org We will create a video collage and share it via the website, Facebook and Twitter!! Please only send photos if you consent to their use on social media.
