Autism Acceptance Month

Advocate for Autism in April

April is Autism Awareness, Acceptance, and Advocacy Month, also known as 4A. 


Previously called Autism Awareness Month, the change in name is due to the fact that one in 44 children are diagnosed with autism, and likely everyone has been directly or indirectly impacted by the disorder in some way. Thus, it is important to shift from solely awareness to Autism acceptance. 


There are many ways you can show your support to help people with autism reach their full potential. Visit to discover ways to be an advocate in your community. 


The City of Irvine’s Disability Services team provides support to individuals with sensory, physical, or cognitive disabilities and their family members in the Irvine community. These services include social recreational programming, inclusion and accommodation support, and resources and referrals.
