Make change in the challenges autistic people face

“What is Autism?” Is still one of the highest searched questions on Google, this needs to change.

We all have a part to play in learning more about what it is like to be autistic so we can help contribute to a society that works better for Autistic people.  

By spreading awareness and understanding, together we can make a difference. A difference in the likes of employment prospects, bullying incidents at schools and how society sees autism. 

It is estimated that around 700,000 people in the UK have a diagnosis of autism. One in 100 children in the UK have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder.
