For World Autism Acceptance Month, Positive Partnerships is proud to announce the launch of new resources for families, educators and communities to strengthen positive outcomes for young people on the autism spectrum.

The new resources aim to provide accurate and reliable information about autism and promote understanding and acceptance. The resources have been created with the input of Positive Partnerships’ Autistic Advisory Group, which includes autistic individuals, family members and professionals with expertise in autism. Positive Partnerships engaged in a thorough community checking process to ensure the language used within the resources is inclusive and accessible for everyone.

A suite of new information sheets are available in a range of languages, including Arabic, Assyrian, Burmese, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Dari, Farsi, English, Greek, Hazaragi, Hindi, Japanese, Khmer, Korean, Nepali, Punjabi, Spanish, Tamil, Thai, Turkish, Urdu and Vietnamese. These new resources aim to provide support to families, schools and communities in their understanding of autism and the diversity of autism.

You can find these within our 'In Our Language' resource page, or by clicking on the link below:

As well, we have launched a new animation, "What is Autism?", that explores our understandings of autism, currently translated into Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin and Korean with more versions being released soon. This animation provides an accessible introduction to autism that can help families on their journey.

You can watch the animation in English below, and in language on our Arabic, Chinese (Simplified and Traditional), Korean, Spanish and Somali language resource pages, with more languages to follow.
