As a parent or carer to someone on the autism spectrum, your experience will be really important to help us educate the public about how overwhelming the world can be for autistic children and adults – crowded, unpredictable, loud and bright. Like getting too much information.
If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look at the NAS campaign film which shows what it can be like to feel overloaded.
Please share it on Facebook or Twitter so that we can really start to improve autism understanding. Together we can help everyone to understand autism.
Best wishes, Tom Madders (Head of Campaigns, The National Autistic Society)
