Change ‘World Autism Awareness Week’ to just ‘World Autism Week!’

This petition had 49 supporters

Raising Awareness has fantastic benefits. However, it is not enough for the millions of Autistic people across the world, and their families. We must continue raising awareness of all key topics, that is undeniable, but we must do more than this to accommodate Autistic people in society.

World Autism Awareness Week inspires us to do great things: charity marathons, extreme sports and the classic bucket collection! These are all well and good, but due to the complexity of the condition, we must progress by also inspiring the Autistic people. This is no short-term goal, and it won’t happen overnight, but the sooner we accept Autism and encourage self-acceptance, the sooner we can embrace it!

That is why I ask for your support; to sign this petition to change ‘World Autism Awareness Week’ to just ‘World Autism Week!’ The specificity of the existing name may discourage people from going beyond raising awareness. The latter however opens the door to so many more possibilities concerning Autism!

Thank you,

Kieran Gallagher
