Autism awareness is largely focused on prevalence rates and the challenges and characteristics associated with ASD, which are often framed in a negative light. What we typically don't hear about is the person behind the diagnosis and the stigmas they face. The Golden Hat Foundation developed a powerful public service announcement designed to depict autism in a new way. Featured in the video are individuals on the autism spectrum who speak out and illustrate that they too are sentient human beings who deserve respect and the opportunity to thrive.
