Apple spotlights apps for Autism Acceptance Month

Apple has spotlighted several apps for Autism Acceptance Month, part of a history of campaigns by autistic people and their allies to shift the month’s focus from autism awareness to autism acceptance. 

“Now more than ever, autistic people can share their voices with the world,” Apple says. “With the help of amazing apps, they can learn, play, and communicate. Through the power of books and podcasts, they can tell their stories. During Autism Acceptance Month, we celebrate how their unique experience enriches us all.”

The Autistic Self Advocacy Network (ASAN) has created a dedicated website for Autism Acceptance Month, and provides “unique programming every April focused on promoting acceptance and inclusion and changing the dialogue about autism from fear, pity, and tragedy to support, acceptance, and empowerment.”
