We’re Paul and Michael and we have two wonderful autistic twin boys, Levi and Lucas.

Levi and Lucas can find social situations incredibly challenging. They’ll often have meltdowns and people will tell us “they’re naughty – control them”. And we’re not alone. 28% of autistic people have been asked to actually leave a public space because of behaviour associated with autism. But no one should have to feel like this.

The National Autistic Society’s Helpline has really changed family life for us. One call provided us with so much advice, and helped us find a local service which has better equipped us to be there for our boys.

But there’s still so much more that could be done, to support autistic people who can struggle in social situations and to ultimately create a world that works for autistic people.

Please show your support today with a gift, to be there for more autistic people and their families, like ours.

Thank you.
