Autism is a way of being.

 

It's a collection of specific differences from commonly perceived expectations of sensory perception, information processing & expression, which is viewed by external observers as differences in behaviour & communication.

Autistamatic is here to help 
people both on & off the autism
spectrum understand more about 
the lives, challenges and above all 
potential of autistic people in 
society today.

Join us as we explore our 
many coloured minds...
