Autistic Pride Day

June 18th is Autistic Pride Day. This year's theme is "Celebrate Neurodiversity". According to the Autistic Pride Day web site:
"The day is for positive events relating to autism spectrum conditions, for people on the spectrum and their families and friends. The autism spectrum includes autism, asperger's, hyperlexia, and PDD-nos.Events such as walks, parades, picnics and parties are expected, for people to have fun and relax and know that people with autism are valid members of the community.In 2005 there were many celebrations, it is expected that there will be even more in 2006."

This is an initiative started by Aspies for Freedom.
