        World Autism Acceptance Week – time to embrace difference.

         

        This week is all about celebrating Autism Spectrum Conditions. 

         

        As a non-profit organisation embedded in the community, we (SEN Talk CIC) work closely with families of autistic young people aged 5-16 and the wider community. Our mission is to improve outcomes for young people across different areas of their lives, providing opportunities for growth and development that empower young people and improve long-term outcomes. 

         

        We embrace a person-centred approach to enrich our knowledge and practice, and ensure our work remains meaningful. Autism Acceptance is a significant move from general awareness raising to embracing differences within the community and is an excellent opportunity to highlight the great work within the community and shed light on some of the challenges around what people still might think about Autism. 

         

        Over the past decade particularly, Autism has become a frequent topic within the education sector, and it is not unusual for autistic pupils to be present in most classrooms. It is important to note that Autism does not always look the same for everyone. The difference can present differently for different people at different times, accentuating the necessary shift from awareness to acceptance and celebrating the achievements and abilities of Autistic young people. This provides a platform for Autistic voices, ultimately helping us to understand the individual experience to unable us to provide practical support that allows every young person to reach their full potential. 

         

        In celebration of WAAW we have compiled a summary of 5 unhelpful things commonly thought about Autism.
