April 2, World Autism Awareness Day, has been an officially sanctioned United Nations General Assembly Day of Observance since 2008.
In 2020 the world will celebrate this day very differently from in the past, many in their homes, and for those who are attending a workplace, within the confines of social distancing.
Since 2012 Autism Queensland has recognised this day with the launch of its Go Blue for Autism campaign. Go Blue also looks different this year as planned events have been postponed until next year, including those traditionally held at our centres and school campuses.
Thank you to everyone who had planned to hold an event this April, purchased merchandise, followed us on Facebook. We welcome your support and acknowledgment of this annual campaign.
Go Blue will return again in 2021 bigger and better than ever.
In the meantime we encourage you to visit our Facebook page and share your stories about why and who you ‘Go Blue’ for each year.
