This year, on World Autism Awareness Day the United Nations Secretary-General has called on governments and others around the world to take measures to support inclusion of people with autism.
United Nations Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, states: ”World Autism Awareness Day is about more than generating understanding; it is a call to action. I urge all concerned to take part in fostering progress by supporting education programmes, employment opportunities and other measures that help realize our shared vision of a more inclusive world.”
That is exactly what the ASC-Inclusion project aims to do – supported by the European Union, our project is creating a software program for children to increase the inclusion of people with autism in all aspects of life through gaining a better understanding of emotions.
World Autism Awareness Day was declared by the United Nations General Assembly six years ago to be held on April 2; an annual day to draw attention to the urgent needs of people with autism around the world.
