Autism Initiatives launch “Autism: Life in Colour” for World Autism Awareness Day

Categories: News

Autism Initiatives has received funding from the Scottish Government for an exciting new project which Autism Network Scotland are supporting. We are aiming to capture the views of people with autism about their lives by inviting them to submit 2 images (or video clips) all taken on the same day:


April 2nd 2013 – World Autism Awareness Day


The aim of the project is to provide a visual representation of the Government’s Autism Mapping Project which aims to gain an understanding of what life is like for people with autism throughout Scotland. The project will add to this understanding directly through the eyes of the person with autism. This will be unique in its accessibility and breadth of contribution from across the autism spectrum and the geographic and age span of the country.


On April 2nd this year, we would like you to take 2 pictures (or short video clips) and submit them via the project website, which will be available very soon. The website will have all the submission details and also the details of authorisation to use the images you submit.


The two images should capture the following:


  1. “What’s the best thing about today?”
  2. “What’s the worst thing about today?”
