When You Email Your Daughter’s School To Find Out Why They Were Silent During Autism Acceptance Month…

This is the reply you receive:

Thank you for reaching out to us and sharing such a wonderful idea! We will certainly add an awareness day and work on creating an awareness initiative to our calendar for the 2016-2017 school year. We will work with our teachers and provide them with additional information/awareness on the topic of autism.

Have a great day!

You better believe as an autism parent and PTO member I will be involved and inquiring about these activities for next year.  This was the first operation year for the school so I wanted to see what/if they had any activities planned.  I was saddened that nothing at all was mentioned or planned the entire month.  This has to change and it WILL change. I’m going to make sure of it!

  1. Yes, you need to respond back with something, like “Thank you and I will be more than happy to work with you and the other members to create some activities surrounding autism awareness.” Make sure that they stay on it.

  2. Nicky, I don’t know if this will be any use to you, but in the UK this year, they had the first schools involvement during autism awareness month, and the National Autistic Society prepared a downloadable series for info for schools, teachers and children to learn about autism. I thought you may find it useful, and maybe find some ideas to pass onto your school. This is the link:
