The Nurturing Autism Programme
The Autistic perspective: autism for Autistic people is a neurodevelopmental difference, where Autistic brains work differently to non-autistic people. There are as many different brains and ways of experiencing the world as there are different bodies.There is a variety of Autistic people, just as there is a variety of non-autistic people, but all Autistic people share some similarities. “There is no one way to be Autistic.” (Autistic Self Advocacy Network 2020)
