Video Message on World Autism Awareness Day
Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the UN

世界提高自闭症意识日致辞
联合国秘书长 潘基文
2011年4月2日
自闭症也称孤独症,是一种严重的精神发育障碍,其概念由美国约翰斯·霍普金斯大学专家莱奥·坎纳于1943年首次提出。自闭症的症状一般在3岁以前就会表现出来,主要特征是漠视情感、拒绝交流、语言发育迟滞、行为重复刻板以及活动和兴趣范围的显著局限性等。2007年12月18日,联合国大会通过第62/139号决议规定,从2008年起,每年的4月2日被定为世界提高自闭症意识日(World Autism Awareness Day)。联合国鼓励各国政府和相关组织在这一天举行活动,提高人们对自闭症的认识,同时宣传早期诊断和干预治疗自闭症的重要意义。

Dear friends,
亲爱的朋友们:

World Autism Awareness Day is important to the United Nations and to me personally. My wife is one of many UN advocates for autism awareness. She and I both know that the tens of millions of people with autism deserve the utmost care, attention and respect.

世界提高自闭症意识日对联合国很重要,对我个人尤其重要。我夫人是联合国提高自闭症意识的倡导者之一。她和我都知道,千百万自闭症患者最值得关心、重视和尊重。

Autism does not discriminate ... it can strike anyone, in any country ... But some people with autism do suffer terrible discrimination, abuse and isolation. We CANNOT tolerate any such violation of their human rights.

自闭症本身不歧视……任何人,任何国家都可能有……。但是,有些自闭症患者受到可怕的歧视、虐待和排斥。我们不能容许任何对其人权的侵犯。

Autism is a complex disorder. But with the right treatment early on, we can see improvements. That is why it is so important to raise awareness about the signs of autism and provide services early in life.

自闭症是一种复杂的疾病。但在许多情况下,如果早日得到适当的治疗,就能有所改善。因此必须提高对自闭症征象的认识,并尽早提供服务。

There are other ways society can help. We can support parents. We can create jobs for individuals with autism based on their skills and strengths. We can improve public education to better meet the needs of students with autism.

社会各界可以用不同的方式来帮助。我们可以支持他们的父母。我们可以依据他们的专业技能和优势,为自闭症患者创造就业机会。我们可以改善公众教育,以更好地满足自闭症学生的需求。

Doing this will help people with autism and enrich all of us. As the mother of one child with autism said, "Although my daughter has walked a long way, I have walked a longer way."

采取上述各种步骤,将有利于整个社会。如同一个自闭症孩子的母亲所说,“我女儿走过的路很远,但我走过的路更远。”

Together, let us travel this road toward a more caring and inclusive world.

让我们一起走这条路,迈向一个更有爱心和包容心的世界。

Thank you.

谢谢你们。
