Many people with autism struggle against prejudice arising from a lack of understanding of their condition. The charity Action for Children has produced a TV advert that reinforces those negative stereotypes. Listen to John Burns talk about how he, and many other people with direct experience of autism, feels about this advert.
Please add your voice to ours and help defend people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. Have a listen to our Autism Awareness Special edition (episode 46) for a different view of autism.
