Throughout the month we will celebrate our continued commitment to diversity and inclusion by sharing real stories of autistics across all Canadian provinces and territories to shine a light on their strengths, dreams and struggles. We hope they will inspire others on the spectrum and create a more inclusive Canada.  You can demonstrate your commitment to understanding and acceptance of people with autism every day by advocating, sharing stories, and lighting up the world with kindness. Thank you for doing your part in building a kinder world for people with autism.' -Autismspeaks.ca
