Autism and the Neurotypical World

It is suggested that a focus on some of the strengths of people with autism may help to overcome some of the fear of disability in the general public, stir their interest and reassure them that people with autism can and should enjoy community services and facilities. Only then can we truly build bridges between the cultures of autism and the neurotypical world most of us live in.

My brother has achieved so much with the limited support he was offered. With reasonable transportation options and support, his freedom of movement would have been so much more significant and fulfilling.

Our dream is that the generations that have followed him will have the full range of support that he did not have access to. This is a human right that is must be available to all individuals with an ASD!
