I have autism – a condition which can affect the way I interact with others in social situations.
I get severe anxiety and can have difficulty communicating.
I’ve been bullied throughout my life. People assume that I’m anti-social or they don’t know why I struggle to participate in group activities.
With Fixers, I want to help people better understand autism and the challenges I face.
I want to show them that their patience could make a real difference to a person with autism, who is just trying to get their voice heard.
December 2015 I launched my Fixers film at a celebration of youth event held at The Gate Arts Centre in Cardiff. I received positive feedback from an audience of young people and professionals. You can read some of their comments below.
‘This is a really great animation! I thought it was a very insightful video showing both aspects of having autism.’
‘I will be using this as a staff training tool in the S.E.N school I work at. Love it!’
‘I love the animation. It’s so great to help people understand.’
‘This is so well explained. You should be proud of yourself.’
