International Asperger’s Awareness Day
February 18, 2011 – International Asperger’s Day
In honor of Hans Asperger’s birthday, February 18th has been declared International Asperger’s Day. Hans Asperger (February 18, 1906 – October 21, 1980) was an Austrian pediatrician, after whom Asperger syndrome (AS) was named. He wrote over 300 publications, mostly concerning autism in children. Asperger published the first definition of Asperger syndrome in 1944.
“We are convinced, then, that autistic people have their place in the organism of the social community. They fulfill their role well, perhaps better than anyone else could, and we are talking of people who as children had the greatest difficulties and caused untold worries to their care-givers.”
Asperger’s birthday, February 18, was declared International Asperger’s Day and is observed by various autism-related organizations.
