An autism charity was praised for its work at an event to mark World Autism Awareness Day.

Kim Wilson, the health minister, delivered a proclamation on the City Hall steps on Monday to recognise the efforts of Bermuda Autism Support and Education.

World Autism Awareness Day was set up to encourage governments to boost knowledge about the condition.

It was designed to inform the general public about the global health crisis of autism, stress the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention, and celebrate the unique talents and qualities of individuals with autism.
