I put challenge in the title but it’s not really a competition just if I see any projects on it I’ll give them a mushroom
Anyways April is Autism Awareness Month and April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day! I feel like a lot of people misunderstand autism, and don’t really get what it is. A lot of people have one idea of what autism is and think every autistic person acts that way, when in reality we’re all different. Also autism is often goes undiagnosed or misdiagnosed, especially in girls and people of color. I’ve seen awareness projects for BLM and LGBTQ people but not really any for autistic or other neurodivergent people. It’s important to spread awareness about these kind of things too!
So for the “challenge” I think it’d be cool if a couple of people could post a project on April 1st. It could be anything like it could just say happy autism awareness month or it could be a drawing/trail art of a ribbon with colored puzzle pieces (the autism awareness ribbon, you can google it). It could be informational and reference resources for people to check out and learn more about autism like the Autistic Self Advocacy Network or the Autistic Women & Nonbinary Network. Please don’t however reference Autism Speaks since they are ableist and don’t actually support autistic people.
Link any projects here and I’ll like them and might give it a mushroom. If no one does it that’s fine too I just think it’s a cool idea and I hope you all have a happy Autism Awareness Month and look more into what you can do to make the world a more safe space for autistic people
