April is National Autism Awareness Month and this month our blog will be focusing on posts about autism.
For autistic people, simple social interactions can be extremely stressful. They need more time to process information and to work out how to answer questions. This new video from the National Autistic Society, starring 12-year-old autistic actor Holly, shows exactly what this experience is like.
The National Autistic Society is asking everyone to make one small change to help reduce the overload for autistic people. To find out more about autism and the change you can make, visit autism.org.uk/tmi
