Autism Acceptance Month

This April, the Autism Society of America is proud to continue its sixth annual #CelebrateDifferences campaign in honor of Autism Acceptance Month. Everyday, we work to create connections, empowering everyone in the Autism community to live fully. We believe that acceptance is creating a world where everyone in the Autism community is connected to the support they need, when they need it. And by everyone, we mean every unique individual: the implacable, inimitable, and irreplaceable you.

Your support helps us connect Autistic individuals and their networks of support to education, resources, advocacy, and above all, to each other.

Road to Acceptance

The Road to Acceptance project is part of the Autism Society’s greater efforts for Autism Acceptance Month, and is made possible by Goodnites. Our project aims to shed light on the diverse experiences and perspectives within the Autism community, fostering greater awareness, understanding, and inclusion. By asking questions about health, safety, employment, and other key topics, we can amplify the voices of individuals with Autism and their families, to create a more inclusive society.

The Autism Society will hit the road with our branded Chrysler Pacifica vehicles to create a mobile video studio to capture community stories. The car cabin will be designed to create a sensory-friendly, comforting space for our community to share their stories.
