Who Are We

Starting from 2008, 2nd April is set by United Nations as the “World Autism Awareness Day”.

 

The GuangZhou World Autism Awareness Day (GZ-WAAD) consist of a group of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in GuangZhou, China in promoting the “World Autism Awareness Day” set up by the United Nations in 2nd April 2008.  We started the preparation meeting by five promoting NGOs in early August 2008.  The Organizing Committee of the GuangZhou World Autism Awareness Day was formed in late September 2008. 

 

Sources of the below WAAD information are adopted from: www.worldautismawarenessday.org/

Did you know

  • Autism affects as many as 1 in 150 children and 1 in 94 boys (see this FAQ for more)
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the world
  • More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with diabetes, cancer, & AIDS combined
  • Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism, but early diagnosis and intervention improve outcomes
  • Autism does not discriminate by geography, class, or ethnicity

The WAAD prepared a brochure on autism including the warning signs to help you learn more.

 

About World Autism Awareness Day

On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 62/139, tabled by the State of Qatar, which declares April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) in perpetuity. Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al-Missned, Consort of His Highness Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar, supported the campaign for a World Autism Awareness Day through the current 62nd UN General Assembly Session, garnering consensus support from all United Nations Member States.

This UN resolution is one of only three official disease-specific United Nations Days and will bring the world's attention to autism, a pervasive disorder that affects tens of millions. The World Autism Awareness Day resolution encourages all Member States to take measures to raise awareness about autism throughout society and to encourage early diagnosis and early intervention. It further expresses deep concern at the prevalence and high rate of autism in children in all regions of the world and the consequent developmental challenges.

World Autism Awareness Day will shine a bright light on autism as a growing global health crisis. WAAD activities will help to increase and develop world knowledge of the autism epidemic and will impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, WAAD will celebrate the unique talents and skills of persons with autism and will be a day when individuals with autism are warmly welcomed and embraced in community events around the globe.

By bringing together autism organizations all around the world, we will give a voice to the millions of individuals worldwide who are undiagnosed, misunderstood and looking for help. Please join us in our effort to make this possible.
