Today, 2 April, is the United Nations's ‪‎World Autism Awareness Day‬. It is not just about sharing what autism is. Rather, it is a call to action to make sure that people with autism are fully integrated into all areas of society. Including ‪Scouting‬.

Tell us how your association is catering for this group of children and young people!

Find some suggestions in the Guidelines on Scouting for People with Disabilities, a booklet published by the World Organization of the Scout Movement (WOSM) in 2008.

And to give you some additional ideas, here is what some National Scout Organisations (NSOs) are proposing:

Ireland:
Scouting Ireland - Gasóga na hÉireann

Spain:
Federación de Scouts-Exploradores de España (ASDE)

United Kingdom:
The Scout Association
