Autism and cultural issues campaign #Togetherweareacommunity
Anna Kennedy Online Online have launched Autism and cultural issues campaign #Togetherweareacommunity that we shall continue to highlight.
Anna Kennedy OBE Autism Campaigner throughout the years has spoken to many families who are experiencing cultural stigmatisation and this is unnecessary family pressure and an additional strain placed on parents that is unjustified and unfair.
We want to support everyone and promote inclusion and reach out to families affected.
We are all equal.
Please take a look at the articles below and what we have accomplished so far:
On Saturday 17th February 2018 at an event of 150 women from the Asian Community Anna asked if anyone in the audience had a family member diagnosed with autism. Not one person raised their hand.
Later on in the evening eight parents approached Anna and her team at the event highlighting they were parents and struggling and felt that they could not speak in front of the group for the fear of stigmatisation. This has to stop and we are offering worktops to communities to continue to raise Autism Awareness as part of our ongoing campaign.

Anna Kennedy Online - our press release
Alongside the daily challenges faced by a family affected by autism many families experience a great deal of stigmatisation and disapproval from the Asian community, who have often been quick to judge and form opinions based on misconceptions and ignorance and having little or no knowledge.
