The eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2016. Every year, autism organisations around the world celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.

Thanks to the Aspect Hunter School for helping us celebrate!

Aspect Hunter School provides specialised education support for many children across the Hunter who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Aspect Hunter’s Base School is located at Thornton, while satellite classes also operate in mainstream schools in the Hunter.

April 2 is a significant day for the autism community worldwide. It’s an opportunity to recognise the 1 in 100 individuals on the spectrum, their abilities, their strengths and their contribution to our community and is proud day for autism families across the globe.

The Newcastle Knights are pleased to support the cause and to celebrate Autism Awareness Day.
