Spectrum of Voices Comic
What is the Autism Spectrum?
If you truly want to understand the autism spectrum, it is important that you hear from autistic adults and learn from their life experiences.
Rebecca Burgess is a comic artist and autistic advocate. She released her “Understanding the Spectrum” during Autism Acceptance Week and it went viral when autistic people, parents and teachers discovered her comic and felt it helped them explain the autism spectrum in a more accurate way.
We asked Rebecca to be a part of our #Activate4Autism movement by creating “Hear Our Spectrum of Voices,” the next generation of her comic to include other autistic voices.
“People are hugely misinformed and to be able to build upon my first comic that breaks myths and stereotypes is so rewarding. It was so amazing to be able to incorporate the quotes from other autistic advocates. This will really help people have a deeper understanding about the autism experience.”
Stay open and keep listening to a spectrum of voices...
