Awareness of autism leaflet

This leaflet has been published in order to increase public awareness about autism, the difficulties they experience, their support needs and their rights.

It is therefore important to increase public awareness of what autism entails, of autistic people’s rights, of their difficulties in adapting to an inflexible society that does not provide for their different and specific needs.

At a political level, action has been urged towards more inclusive policies for people with disabilities in areas as broad as healthcare, education, employment, ageing and life-long needs. It is absolutely essential that these policies are adopted and that children and older people with autism are not denied their fundamental right to live full, worthwhile lives, within their unique possibilities.
