Personal Accounts of Living with Autism

The Blake Family This section contains personal accounts of what it is like to live with autism. Some of the accounts are from individuals on the autism spectrum, others are from parents and other carers.

If you would like to share your own account, either for publication on this website or for use when we talk to journalists, please email info@researchautism.net

We want to know more about how autism affects you, what issues you face on a day to day basis, and how you deal with those issues.
