'Understanding Autism' poster on purple background

 

To create a society that works for autistic people, we need the public to understand more about autism. We asked autistic people and their families to tell us what they most wanted the public to know about autism – they told us the five biggest things they wished people understood.

So to help you spread the word about the Big Five, we've put together a poster for you to share - in your local café, your doctor’s surgery, your leisure centre – anywhere where you think people need to understand more about autism.

Like all people, autistic people have their own individual strengths and challenges but there are certain challenges that all autistic people share. If more people know what they are, then they can start making those small simple adjustments to help create a society that works for autistic people.
