Name: Gabriel Ledson
Age: 17
Year of the Fix: 2017
Location: Southport, Merseyside
Campaign: To educate people about autism

I have autism and it made secondary school hard for me - people just made assumptions about me and I got labelled as a problem child because of my autistic traits.

 

Because I didn't have a formal diagnosis, teachers would just assume that I was being naughty and other students would assume that I was weird. 

 

I've made a film with Fixers because I was misunderstood and had a hard time and don't want anyone else to experience what I did. 

 

I want to tell people that if you have autism it shouldn’t hold you back or hinder what you want to do. 

The following Fixers helped me with this Fix:
