Are You Autistic? is a Documentary programme.


Are You Autistic?

Autism cases are at an all-time high in the UK, with one in 100 people thought to have autism. But experts now think the true number may be much higher, with the situation at crisis point. A 'lost generation' of thousands of adults could be going through life without a diagnosis, missed by a system struggling to understand the condition. Anna Richardson - whose nephew has recently been diagnosed with autism - and campaigners Georgia Harper and Sam Ahern - who both have autism - set out to uncover the true face of autism in the UK today. Working closely with charities, experts and people with autism from across the spectrum, this programme challenges what we think we know about autism. Trainee human rights lawyer Georgia and artist Sam want to smash apart the myths about the condition and show what people with autism are really like.
