'Stories from the Spectrum' text with icons of a book, pencil, art, conference speaker

We launched Stories from the Spectrum during World Autism Awareness Week 2019.

Our stories feature voices from across the autism spectrum and highlight the rich variety of autistic experience. There are funny stories, thought-provoking stories, moving and challenging stories. 

The stories come mostly from autistic people, and also from families and carers. You can read them in our news section, and watch them on videos and Spectrum Live.

We post stories on social media to coincide with news storiesupcoming events and campaigns. We hope you enjoy them as they are posted, or you can binge on them on our website

How you can get involved

From time to time, we put out a notices on Twitter or on a news story, to let you know we are looking for stories about a particular experience or subject. 

For example, for Autism Hour, we want to know about your experiences in shops – good and bad. Or at Christmas, we want your stories about what you do during the festive season. 

If you have any questions, please email our Stories Team on stories@nas.org.uk or socialmedia@nas.org.uk.
