Celebrate World Autism Awareness Day With Us On April 4th

Friday, April 01, 2016
Categories: Inclusive Schools, Student, Parent, and Community

On April 4, 2016, we join together with Autism Ontario to Raise the Flag in recognition of World Autism Awareness Day. We celebrate with over 355 municipalities and 300 schools across Ontario as they Raise the Flag. At our three central offices, 5050 Yonge Street, 140 Borough Drive and 1 Civic Centre, and many of our schools, we will raise the Autism Ontario flag along with the rest of the world to raise Autism awareness.

This is an opportunity to support the over 3,000 TDSB students who have an Autism Spectrum Disorder and to provide opportunities for conversations promoting inclusion and understanding. Many schools are celebrating this Autism awareness through school-based events. For example:
Tam O’Shanter Public School will be hosting an Autism Awareness Community Event on April 7, 2016 at 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. and you are cordially invited to attend See the promo video here. The school has also created a video to help raise awareness. It can be viewed here.

Resources to support your discussions can be found by contacting the TDSB Autism Services Team, 416-393-8942, Tippet Library or Autism Ontario, http://raisetheflagforautism.com/toolkits/
