We Need To Talk About Adult Autism

The announcement by Aussie comedian Josh Thomas that he has been diagnosed with Autism as an adult has highlighted that many people are living with the condition, but don't know it.

The Quicky speaks to an expert in Autism, and a woman with lived experience to find out why so many people go undiagnosed, and how we can all better recognise and appreciate that every person's experience with Autism is unique.
