George Stanbury for National Autistic Society

Calm with Horses is a film which features Jack, a five-year-old autistic boy, and his parents, Niamh and Arm. As part of the production process, our autistic Campaigns Officer George Stanbury, was one of our staff to provide input to make Jack’s experiences as realistic and reflective of the challenges autistic people may face. Here, he writes about why it’s so important autistic characters are shown on our screens.
