The month of April is going to be a sea of colour for Educational Experience. In support of World Autism Awareness Month and the ‘Go colourful for autism initiative’ by Autism Spectrum Australia our team will bring you exclusive information, expert insight and a huge range of activities to enhance the learning experience of children identified with Autism.

Autism is a lifelong developmental condition that affects how a person connects to the environment and how they interact with people.  According to Autism Spectrum Australia estimated one in 100 people has autism; in Australia that equates to more than 200 000 people. It has been found that Autism touches almost four times as many boys than girls.

We will have special articles each Monday for the duration of April, all with specific guidance for parents, educators and teachers supporting children with Autism. Also, in conjunction with Dr John we will have exclusive tips and advice for siblings and parents, with unique activities and featured products that aim to enhance the learning experiences of children with Autism.

Aspect CEO Adrian Ford believes using the spectrum of colours as a visual signature for World Autism Awareness Day sends a powerfully inclusive message about the ‘different brilliance’ of people living with autism today. “Let’s celebrate the colour and vibrancy people with autism bring to our everyday lives by wearing bright colours on World Autism Awareness Day this year, and for years to come,” he said.
