Did You Know that April is Autism Acceptance Month?
1 in 46 children in BC has autism. This April, we are celebrating Autism Acceptance Month.

Leading up to last April, Jack asked his teacher if he could speak to his class about autism and how his classmates could support CAN. By giving his talk, Jack helped educate his peers while raising funds for CAN and increasing autism acceptance in his classroom. Way to go Jack! (Read the full story.)

Have an idea for a fundraiser, partnership, or a way to educate your school about the prevalence of autism? We CAN support you!

Contact anna.dacunha@canucksautism.ca with any questions or ideas.
