I am 36 years old and I have autism. Symbols are awesome. They break down barriers and promote inclusion and independence. I can talk, verbalise my thoughts and feelings to some extent with speech but symbols make it easier and clearer to others. I am proud to be a symbol user. I am proud to have a voice of my own. Thank you Alex
