President Barack Obama

Autism Sunday takes place on 8th February 2009 and world leaders have been asked to listen to the voices of the Autism Community before they formulate policy on matters concerning autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

Campaigners in the United States have issued a call to President Elect Barack Obama to release a message for Autism Sunday 2009 sharing his ‘vision for autism.’ US autism and Asperger’s websites have called on President Obama to involve people with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome in decision making on key education and health policy issues. It is widely expected that President Barack Obama will give autism a much higher priority when he reaches the White House.

Campaigners around the world are using Autism Sunday 2009 to lobby and campaign on the issues concerned with autism and Asperger’s Syndrome.

Cathedrals, churches and religious organisations across the globe are planning to observe Autism Sunday on 8th February 2009.Autism Sunday was first launched in the United Kingdom in 2009 by parents and carers Ivan and Charika Corea. The inspiration behind the campaign is their son Charin who has autism.
