The World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) became one of the most breathtaking autism cerebrated events that have been taken place in this decade, for ASEAN region. Streets, parks, national monuments and shopping centers in several major cities in the above 10 countries filled with thousands and thousands steps. Government representatives, NGOs workers, business partners, volunteers, students, families and community members actively participated in this powerful activity. National TV and newspaper of each AAN member’s countries reported on this successful walk. Each mile has embraced an inspiration on action on autism awareness.

The spirit of community gathering shone bright light to individuals with autism and that they are warmly welcomed and embraced into community. Music, talent shows, dances, parades, games, art exhibitions, traditional performances, food, drinks, ice-cream as well as the smiles on everyone faces were displayed strong evidence of the unique talents and skills of persons with autism.
