Frequently Asked Questions
Here are the answers to some ‘frequently asked questions’. If you have a burning question about Reframing Autism that is not answered here, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 Connect 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?
Unfortunately, no, as 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?
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 work with you?
Can I make a donation to Reframing Autism?
Yes, you most certainly can – in fact, please do! You’ll find our details at our Donate page.

The Reframing Autism team would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we have the privilege to learn, work, and grow. Whilst we gather on many different parts of this Country, the RA team walk on the land of the Birpai, Gadigal, Darkinjung, Wadawurrung, Jagera, Turrbal, Whadjuk and Southern Yamatji peoples.
We are committed to honouring the rich culture of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of this Country, and the diversity and learning opportunities they provide us with. We extend our gratitude and respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and to all Elders past, present, and emerging, for their wisdom, their resilience, and for helping this Country to heal.
Always was, always will be Aboriginal land.
