At Reframing Autism, we’re dedicated to uplifting and amplifying the voices of (au)some Autistics from around the world. Our podcasts aim to amplify Autistic voices from a diverse range of backgrounds, with Australian and international Autistic advocates sharing their stories and perspectives from lived experience.
Our mission is to transform the lives of Autistic people and those who care about them through resources, research and education. We want to change the frame through which society views Autism, so that Autistic people can flourish – authentically – to achieve genuine acceptance, inclusion and active citizenship.
Building on the mission of our organisation, we are using the platform of podcasting to continue to challenge dominant, deficit-based narratives people hold around Autism; we are, reframing Autism. In addition, inversely, our podcasts aim to ‘frame’ us; that is to say that we are centering our stories and privileging lived experience.
Through the lens of lived experience and the balm of shared stories, we are creating space for Autistic people to feel seen, heard and connected.
Our podcast, (RE)FRAMED, has been created to center our stories, share our knowledge and contribute to conversations impacting us, our community and our children.
In our own words, we are framing, and re-framing, our stories.
We have released our full first season so you can listen to one or two or binge the whole first season of (RE)FRAMED!
Available wherever you download your podcasts.

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, Awabakal, Wattamattagal, Whadjak, Amangu, Bunurong and Kaurna Yarta 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 with which they provide us. 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.
