1000 hours is a campaign designed to lobby government to fund a minimum of 1000 hours of best-practice early intervention each year for two years of every pre-school aged child with autism.
Monday 2 April marks World Autism Awareness Day, and iconic landmarks all over the world will join together to "Light it up Blue" for autism. We are dedicating the entire month of April to autism awareness. We want to share information about what autism is and create a national conversation to encourage our governments to make a greater investment towards the future of children with autism. By ensuring universal access to best-practice early intervention, school support and vocational support, we can make a difference to thousands of Australians.
Autism is not rare. It affects more than 1 in 160 Australians, so if you don't already know somebody with autism, you soon will. Please, register your vote for 1000 hours and make a difference today.
