World Autism Awareness 2019

Autism Awareness video 2019This week (1 - 7th April) Real Life Options joins other organisations across the UK and around the world in talking about and raising awareness of Autism. Autism is a lifelong spectrum condition that affects how people perceive the world and how they interact with others, with many feeling that being autistic is a fundamental aspect of their own identity, their uniqueness.

An estimated 700,000 people (that’s 1 in 100) in the UK live with autism and without the right support, it can have a profound – and sometimes devastating – effect on individuals and their families. While some people may need a lifetime of specialist support, others can and do live very independent lives. Real Life Options celebrates individuality and supports people to have a real voice and real choices in the way they live their lives.

The National Autistic Society has produced this video to help improve our understanding of Autism. To find out more visit www.autism.org.uk.
