Help transform the lives of people with autism

By Sandra Harrison, Interim Principal of the National Autistic Society
Academies Trust’s Vanguard School Kennington

There’s been a huge increase in awareness of autism over the past 20 years.

But not enough people understand the different perspectives, passions and skills autistic people can have and also what it’s like to be autistic, including how hard life can be if you don’t have the right support.

This is why World Autism Acceptance Week, which ends on Sunday is so important.

It’s a chance to get society talking about autism and finding out from autistic people what it’s like to be autistic.

Anyone can get involved by visiting autism.org.uk/waaw where we’ve got information and free resources like assembly plans for schools, quizzes and posters for the workplace.

Better understanding of autism across society and appropriate Government funding for support and services would transform hundreds of thousands of lives.
