Autism Understood (Spectrum Gaming)
A website about Autism, for Autistic Young People.
The Autism Understood website was created so that everyone can gain a better understanding of what autism is. Since most people we meet seem a little confused about what autism actually is.
What is Autism Understood?
Simply put, Autism Understood is a website about autism, for autistic young people up to the age of 17 years.
The website was created by Spectrum Gaming, a registered charity. Spectrum Gaming is a community for autistic young people which has three main intended outcomes:
Building friendships: We wanted to create a community where autistic young people feel comfortable and can make strong friendships in a safe way. Our main provision is our online community, that anyone from across the UK can access. We also run meet ups for young people who live in the Greater Manchester area.
Increasing Self-Acceptance: We want to make sure as many autistic people as possible are able to accept their differences and live the happiest lives they can.
Advocacy: We aim to create a movement that will have a positive influence on society through advocacy, and enable strategic change to ensure the needs of autistic young people are met across the UK.
