About the Event

Observing the impacts of Autism on everyday life, also raising awareness for Autism for others who have autism and others who don’t have autism. My main problem I face is the communication and being understood by others. When there is failure of connecting with others and this can directly affect my mental health and overall well-being.   In everyday life I find that verbal and written communication can be difficult for me. It can be hard to describe and explain my ideas because I sense a barrier in my communication. It’s like I am almost living in a different world to other people. Explaining my ideas to non autistic people can be very difficult because I am not sure if they really understand my ideas.
