Inclusion & Acceptance

Autism acceptance is not just a buzzword — it is an action. It means changing how society thinks about autism, respecting the rights and humanity of all autistic people, and aligning advocacy and research priorities with the priorities of the autistic community. ASAN works to make our society more accepting and inclusive for autistic people and all people with disabilities.
