The world is changing for the better 

News

To help you take a break from the continuous stream of bad or alarming news on TV and social media we have collected here a couple of news articles from 2019 proving that the world is becoming a better place for people on the autism spectrum. We are acutely aware of the difficulties autistic people face due to underfunding and discrimination every day but there is good news too. An increasing demand for autistic employees on the job market and better representation of autistic characters in the media are important signs of a growing understanding and acceptance of neurodiversity in the world.
