Personal stories


We spoke to autistic people with high support needs and their family members, including Ellie Pinnington, a young autistic woman, and Danielle, mother to Freddie, who is autistic and has high support needs.

They talked about their experiences of being autistic or the parent to an autistic child, from the positives of life on the spectrum to some of the challenges they face.
