We want to empower autistic people to lead their own research addressing issues that are most important to the autistic community. That’s why we are launching our Charles Sharland Grant Scheme for Autistic Researchers. This scheme will support autistic people with little or no research experience take their first step into an autism research career.
Thanks to Steevie for highlighting this.
Thanks to Carole for sharing this BBC video: “Yes I can talk…first and foremost I’m Welsh and I love a chinwag” – Girls can have Autism:
As part of The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour and with the support of shopping centre owner intu, in the week of 2 October shops and services all over the UK will be taking simple steps for 60 minutes that lead to a more autism-friendly world. Participating shops and businesses will be turning down music and other noise, dimming the lights and sharing information about autism with their employees.
What to do during The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour:
- Plan your local visits using your interactive map.
- Attend a National Autistic Society Autism Hour.
- Check in and share. We need everyone to know about The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour and why it’s important to you. It’s also a nice way to thank the businesses for participating.
So, when you visit a National Autistic Society #AutismHour, check in on Facebook or Twitter and tell everyone you’re attending The National Autistic Society’s Autism Hour. Don’t forget to use the #AutismHour #AutismTMI hashtags.
Thanks to Steevie for this!
Alex Amelines spent two years creating an animation about autism in his spare time. His goal was to create tolerance and understanding of autism. His animation shows children things from another child’s perspective. I hope you will enjoy this clip as much as we have (also watchable in different languages) :
Thanks to Jackie for this!
