October is Autism Awareness & Acceptance Month

Did you know that October is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month in Canada? Did you know that it is estimated that 1 in 68 individuals have a diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder (ASD)? Did you know that each person with ASD is unique and will have different set of abilities, strengths and challenges? Characteristics of autism vary, as some being very mild in one person and quite severe in another person.

This month is a great opportunity to learn more about autism, raise awareness, and raise acceptance in our schools, workplace, and community. Please enjoy this short, 5-minute video entitled: Amazing Things Happen, created by Alex Amelines (independent animation director). The video was released in April 2017 to coincide with the tenth annual World Autism Awareness Day (Sunday April 2nd, 2017). The aim is to raise autism awareness among young audiences who do not have autism as well as to encourage understanding and acceptance in future generations. It is primarily aimed at 7-11 year old children.

What is your #ocsbOneWord for 2019-2020?

As we embark on an exciting new school year, I invite you to think of the #ocsbOneWord that reflects how you want to experience this school year. For me, it’s all about the word “relationships.”

It’s exciting to think that we will be entering the third decade of the 21st century in this school year. I look forward with eagerness to our annual start-up as we welcome over 44,000 learners to our schools and get excited about the relationships that will be formed and strengthened throughout our Catholic school community.
