Emphasizing that "our work for gender equality and women's empowerment must reach all the world's women and girls", he stressed that the worldwide community's efforts to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) must uphold the 2030 Agenda's core promise to leave no one behind.

"The biggest issue with autism still remains at the grassroots level". "Certainly we have kids and adults with autism who have an wonderful depth of knowledge in a particular area, incredible memory, incredible pattern recognition skills, things like that that are going to set them up for a particular career", Dr. Kuriakose says, but not all people on the spectrum show these characteristics. Facilities have also been established for their treatment and management locally.

This year, the observance of the day at United Nations headquarters NY will focus on the need to empower girls and women with autism.

For some children, realizing their potential might mean a little extra help in the classroom or special tools to support communication in the world around them.

"It made us want to educate people and want to make things better", said Emde.

This 2018, the World Autism Awareness Day focuses on empowering female ASD patients, both young and old.
