World Autism Month
Whether you prefer the puzzle piece or the infinity loop symbol, your voice matters.
Whether you prefer to be called a person with autism or autistic, I respect your preference.
Whether your donations go to Autism Speaks or somewhere else, thank you for supporting the autism community.
Whether you’re autistic yourself, a parent, teacher, sibling, caregiver, therapist, or simply an ally, I want to hear what you have to say.
World Autism Month is about sharing our unique perspectives and standing together as a community to make a difference. Let’s advocate for more support and services for those who need it, instead of getting caught up in terminology and symbols.
Raising awareness and promoting acceptance of what autism means to us is crucial.
It’s important to remember that there isn’t a single autistic experience; rather, there are millions of perspectives that all deserve to be shared and heard with respect.

Please pass these words on:
“I will not start a war on symbols and terminology”
“I will learn to respect preferences”
“I will learn to accept people that donate to Autism Speaks or another charity”
“I will not go around bullying and discriminating others just because they like the blue puzzle”
“There is nothing wrong with liking a blue puzzle”
“Bullying, shaming, harassing, disrespecting and discriminating others for lighting it up blue is NEVER okay”
“Spreading lies and misinformation on a organization causes real-life effects”
