To Donate Please Text 'AUTISMTOGETHER' to 70085 or Click Fundraising Link Here: A WORD FROM AUTISM TOGETHER We hope you enjoy this new short film about autism from a group of talented local actors and filmmakers. It shows some of the experiences a person with autism may encounter, and how it might be for the individual to communicate this to those around them. The film does a particularly good job of showing how some people with autism might experience processing information, dealing with sensory overload, the related anxiety this can cause, and also a difficulty in communicating this to others. In the film, this impacts on the main character’s family, but it could as easily be talking about relationships with friends in social situations, or with colleagues in the workplace. Our organisation’s Autism Training and Advisory Service host courses and 1:1 sessions with autistic individuals and family members/carers, and also runs workshops with businesses – all to increase autism awareness, understanding and acceptance. It is important to remember that every individual on the autism spectrum has an experience of autism that is unique to them. The father in this film had difficulties showing empathy towards his daughter and didn’t like to be hugged, but this isn’t the case for all people with autism. In fact, for some it is quite the opposite. If you would like to learn some more about autism or talk to someone about the issues raised in the film, please visit our website: FILM PLOT Mike Brown is an accomplished local politician.
