Autism awareness video – Can you see me?
We are hoping to promote understanding and acceptance, amongst communities in Wales in order to improve access to facilities and reduce the stigma that many individuals with autism and their parents and carers experience. As an introduction to adapting interactions for individuals with autism, we have created a range of posters providing tips for community provision such as high street stores, banks, supermarkets, hairdressers, cinemas, etc.
We have also created leaflets for GPs and dentists. There are a series of resources to help individuals let others know they have autism (should they wish to), these include a wrist band, card, smartphone screensaver and a car window sticker. We have developed a video to promote the scheme, and have been supported by players from the Wales rugby team and the Football Association of Wales – we are very grateful for their help.
