We are looking for first-person and family perspectives on autism and autism acceptance to include in our “What Is Autism” section. We are looking for brief descriptions of what autism is like from the perspective of autistic people of all ages, and brief discussions from autistic people or their families about what autism acceptance looks like in action day-to-day and why it is important.
Submissions can be written (500 words or less) or video (5 minutes or less, in .MOV, .MPEG4, .AVI, .WMV, .MPEGPS, .FLV, 3GPP, or WebM format.) Submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some possible questions to get you started:
Tell us a little bit about yourself/your family
Tell us a little bit about your autism
Do you like being autistic?
What does autism acceptance mean to you? For society as a whole?
What does autism acceptance look like day to day for you/your family?
Why is autism acceptance important? To you? To the world?
Is there anything else you’d like people to know about autism and autism acceptance?
We look forward to hearing from you!
