Specialisterne Australia is proud to be hosting an engaging business breakfast webinar on Wednesday 21st April 2021 with key note speaker, Thorkil Sonne, Founder and Chairman of the Board, Specialisterne Foundation, giving insights into employing the autism advantage on a global scale and celebrating World Autism Awareness Month.
World Autism Awareness Month (WAAM) aims to put the spotlight on the hurdles that people on the autism spectrum face every day. As a growing global health issue owing to its increasing exposure in the press and common knowledge, autism is gaining more understanding and WAAM activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults on the autism spectrum.
What’s more, WAAM goes one step further to celebrate the strengths and talents of those on the autism spectrum, while putting a huge focus on the warm embrace and welcome that these skills deserve through community events around the globe.
