All of it is a form of communication. All of it tells a story. But are the stories being told?
Our children and adults may not be able to sit at a roundtable in Washington DC, or make what’s considered a traditional statement to autism’s federal decision-makers.
But does that mean they shouldn’t have a presence?
We absolutely believe they should.
Our children and adults have the right to be seen and heard in Washington. Our caregivers are also affected by autism, and they deserve a voice and a presence even if they cannot physically be there.
It’s time to show — not tell – the struggles our community members face.
Here’s how you can help us make real progress in 2013:
- Send us your photos and videos to share with the public and with autism’s federal decision-makers.
- The videos can be 30 seconds to 3 minutes long.
- For photos and smaller video files (under 15 MB), email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- For larger video files (over 15 MB), please upload a private video to YouTube and email us the link. You may also send us links to your already existing videos.
- By emailing your video/link you agree to allow the National Autism Association to use the file at its discretion.
Whether it’s your loved one stimming, having a melt-down, self-injuring, or a person who is completely nonverbal – they ALL have a story to tell.
Will you help us move Autism Forward?
