Representations of autism in public often focus on the negatives, viewing autism as something that needs to be “overcome”. This can lead autistic people, especially those recently diagnosed, to feel anxious about their future. Many struggle in silence and are deprived of vital life experiences that allow them to embrace autism as something to be proud of.

Autistica Changemakers celebrates the people in our community who are using their own experiences and skills to create change for other autistic people.
