Why should your school or class should get involved?

Autism is a lifelong condition. An estimated 1 in every 100 people are autistic.  It is likely that one or more of your students are dealing with the everyday challenges that an autism diagnosis brings to them or a member of their family.  

By taking part in Walk for Autism you will educate your students and their families and create an environment where autistic students are better supported by their classmates.  

Register your school now! and one of our walking buddies will be in touch.
