Pancakes in the park to celebrate World Autism Day
09 Apr 2018

People in Deniliquin and Finley have been invited to enjoy pancakes and fun activities to help show their support for autism awareness.

As part of local celebrations for World Autism Awareness Day, Intereach Ability Links and Kurrajong will be hosting free Pancakes in the Park events in both Deniliquin and Finley to build community awareness and understanding of autism. Activities on the day will include games, balloon release and a group art project along with free, yummy pancakes! There will also be a musical performance by Serhiy at the Deniliquin event.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects how people communicate and interact with others, and also how they view the world. In Australia as many as one in 100 people have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), and as many as 21 million people worldwide are directly affected.

Intereach CEO Keryn Fox said, “Within the general community Autism is often wildly misunderstood. Autism Awareness Day is a chance to recognise those people who are on the spectrum, their accomplishments, strengths and struggles as well as their contribution to our community. We hope Pancakes in the Park encourages people to show support for those living with the effects of Autism and to discuss and understand what we can all do to be more inclusive of people and families who live with Autism.”
