This week is World Autism Awareness week. The coronavirus pandemic has been particularly tough for many autistic people and their families. Services have closed and many people have been left stranded. The ever-changing guidelines and restrictions can be confusing to understand and extremely difficult to implement for autistic people with high support needs.
There are lots of events happening throughout the week to celebrate and raise funds for building an awareness of Autism and Hackney is celebrating Autism as a superpower. It has been asking students to produce a piece of work about what their superpower is.
