Dear members,
Aslam-u-alaikum. I am the father of an autistic spectrum child. As we all know the fourth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2011. Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrate the day with awareness-raising events. How will we celebrate? Please submit your plans/ideas by emailing rizsalam@hotmail.com

My idea is:
I want to organize Walk for Autism Awareness in Karachi. The walk provides a safe, fun, family-centered atmosphere for parents and children of all ages. Please join us to promote autism awareness and support local autism-related programs.

Please send following details to us latest by Tuesday March 15, 2011.

Dear Members
Assalam-O-Alaikum
I think as far as the awareness aspect is concerned, this phase is almost covered a lot and most of the parents are aware about the basics of autism spectrum disorder, now the next step required is some practical steps to be taken in this regard. I will request the parents to plan some practical steps to be taken in long term, on the eve of 4th Autism Awareness Day announced by UNO so that the concerned parents are helped out. I being the director of ARC Islamabad will also contribute in this regard as per my experience. Insha Allah.
Allah Hafiz.

If any parents or organizations have held WAAD 2011 events, post details or photos here, I will document them and upload them to the international UN worldautismawarenessday website

Special Kids INN at lahore held a special event, covered by newspapers

This is a video from Samaa TV
Muhammad Ali from Lahore reports on World Autism Awareness Day for Samaa TV

This is a Daily Times report by Muhammad Javed Pasha about World Autism Awareness Day 2011

This is an older report 22 March 2011 about the new Oasis school of lahore for children with Autism, that I posted about last year, fund raising by selling the art of their students.

We know of the Temple Grandin Film at the Autism Resource Centre at the Ma Ayesha Centre in Karachi.

Did any of these autism awareness walks take place?
