Campaign: To end misunderstandings about autism

I was diagnosed with autism when I was 15 and living with the condition can have its ups and downs.

 

I often don’t handle social situations too well and get negatively stereotyped by people who don’t understand me, which is hard to take.

 

Working with Fixers, my team and I want to raise more awareness of the condition so others know why we sometime act the way we do.

 

Hopefully it will make the public feel more confident in approaching those who have autism instead of dismissing them as being different.

Here is a list of Fixers helping me with my Fix:
