April 2 is World Autism Acceptance Day, a world-wide opportunity to promote acceptance of everyone in the autism community.

What is World Autism Acceptance Day?

The United Nations formally declared April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day in December of 2007 as a way to raise awareness for people living with autism across the world.

Since then, the conversation surrounding the initiative has progressed to focus on acceptance instead of just awareness; a shift Inner Circle proudly stands behind.

“The work and mission of Inner Circle extends beyond our programs and the walls of our ABA therapy centers,” said Sarah Varillas, Inner Circle Autism Network’s chief clinical officer. “Inner Circle seeks to be considered an ally to the autism community by giving back to the community through events and partnerships and we are deeply committed to advancing acceptance and inclusion for everyone in this wonderful community.”

Through our ABA therapy programs and steadfast support for families with children with autism in our centers and our communities, Inner Circle proudly practices and advances an environment of acceptance, support, and inclusion for the autism community.

“We want everyone who joins our Inner Circle to know that we have their back,” said Inner Circle Autism Network CEO David Mikula. “From community events to support and guidance for parents, we’re actively working to promote inclusion and acceptance for the autism community and to support children and their families every step of the way.”
