Awe in Autism is about celebrating the many ways in which those on the spectrum have given us insight, inspired us, and opened our eyes to different ways of looking at the world. We invite you to explore the site, and to experience the Awe in Autism. The creative works in our gallery, and the people who share their stories here, focus on what is good, what is hopeful, and what is worth celebrating.
