On World Autism Day, Autism Ontario and the Art Gallery of Ontario invite you to join us in "Celebrating the Spectrum" 

Celebrate the Spectrum is our theme for World Autism Day 2023. It marks an opportunity for positive action to provide spaces of support and advocacy for our diverse communities while learning about autism and how to make our communities better for people on the autism spectrum.
