Be Awesome for Autism!
April 1 - April 30
Please support us and join in during April. There is something for everyone.
A simple way to support us is to have dress-down Fridays. This year we would love you to wear different shoes. Whether it’s a croc and a stiletto, a Wellington boot and a flip-flop, or just a trainer and a brogue, we hope to see some wonderful combinations. This will draw attention to sensory issues and how wearing two different shoes can make you feel a bit awkward as you go about your daily life.
Please do send us pictures, and let us know beforehand if you intend to do this, particularly if you would like some publicity in the media.
