Sign up your school for WAAW 2018!

We've come a long way in raising awareness about autism, but there's still more to be done until everyone understands.

That's why we have Schools’ Autism Awareness Week - a week dedicated to teaching staff and students about autism through ready-made lesson plans and assemblies. We also provide a fundraising guide, full of fun ideas and activities to help raise money to continue our life-changing work.

Why take part?

You can make a huge difference to the lives of over 700,000 autistic people by taking part in your school, workplace, or fundraising your way. We are here to transform lives, challenge perceptions and build a society that works for autistic people – and the money you raise will help do just that. Your fundraising has helped us gather knowledge from vital resources, spreading the word far and wide through ground-breaking campaigns like Too Much Information

When you sign up, you'll receive downloadable lesson plans and resources about autism, as well as a fundraising guide, packed full of fun ideas and activities.

For extra inspiration, find out why our supporter Ashley took part in World Autism Awareness Week.

When does it take place?

World Autism Awareness Week takes place on 1-7 April 2019. Taking part is a great way to get your pupils involved in helping to raise money and have fun in the lead-up to the Easter holidays.

How do I get my school signed up?

The first step in supporting this important week is to get the dates of 1-7 April 2019 into your school calendar. You will have the opportunity to sign up for the free lesson plans and fundraising guide later this year.
