For Autistic individuals, accessing the community and attending special events can be challenging. However, armed with a greater awareness of neurodiversity, organisations around Australia, such as Sydney Aquarium, The Maritime Museum and The Queensland Ballet, are holding events to create a far more inclusive environment. Some organisations also provide visual stories.
