Campaign: To highlight the challenges faced by those living with autism

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.’
