“Further to my article of 19th July 2012 on autism awareness, I attach for your information a link to a short film on the subject produced by Wiltshire Council. It is a compelling piece of work as it focuses on the real life experiences of people with autism as told by themselves.


Please circulate the link as widely as you can so that we can raise the important issue of autism awareness across our communities.”

    Really enjoyed this video, it’s really well done. Great idea just to get a couple of key facts about reading emotions and predicting people, helps us understand autism.

    When people with autism are supported to speak for themselves that is great. I apprecciated the diversity most which is what people do not expect. Thanks for posting it.
