Here are the answers to some ‘frequently asked questions’. If you have a burning question about Reframing Autism that is not answered here, please let us know.
Can I share your page/meme/blog/video?
Yes, absolutely! Whether you are joining us on our website, or Facebook, Instagram or YouTube, our resources are freely available and we’d like them to be seen by as many people as possible. You are welcome to tag us in your post. We do ask that you please do not alter our content in any way, including cropping out attribution lines from our memes.
Why are there image descriptions on your posts?
We use image descriptions or alt text wherever possible to assist those who may be using screen readers. We also use captions on our videos to assist those with auditory processing difficulties, hearing impairments or other communication differences and preferences. We try to ensure our resources are accessible to as many people as possible.
Why do you show pronouns after an advocate’s name?
Since there is often an intersection of Autistic and LGBTQIA+ identities, many of our projects feature gender diverse and non-binary advocates, and out of respect to those people we indicate pronouns on our materials where relevant.
Can you share my page/resource with your networks?
You are welcome to submit your page/resource to us via the Contact page on this website, by Facebook message, or by email (email@example.com) for our consideration. Please do keep in mind we have a very busy content schedule and your resource may not tie in with these plans for a variety of reasons.
Can you share my fundraiser?
No. Reframing Autism is a charity itself. We are focused on being able to sustain our activities and therefore we cannot share any personal fundraisers or charity appeals.
Can you share my research project to help me recruit participants?
Unfortunately, no, we cannot advertise others’ research. Currently we do not have the resources to perform all the checks and balances for us to feel comfortable sharing research recruitment, and therefore we cannot promote external research projects.
Where can I find your resources?
Reframing Autism’s website is www.reframingautism.org.au. We publish all our videos, blogs, tip sheets, advocacy and position statements on our site. We also have a Reframing Autism channel on YouTube, which includes all the video content we have produced. Our memes are shared across Facebook and Instagram and are categorised by theme in the Albums section of our Facebook page.
Which social media platforms are you on?
Where can I find out about your events?
For priority access to our events, you will need to subscribe (for free). We do advertise our events on other platforms if tickets remain after priority access closes.
How can I learn more about Reframing Autism?
Follow us! We recently introduced the team in this video, which was shared with our Facebook community.
You can also learn about our organisation’s history and the team at our website.
How can I work with you?
Occasionally we may advertise employment opportunities on Facebook and on our website. We do also collaborate with Autistic advocates and creatives through some paid projects. If you feel you have a particular skill to offer our organisation, please get in touch via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
