Are you autistic? is a Channel 4 documentary presented by trainee lawyer Georgia Harper and artist Sam Ahern, both of whom are autistic. It was broadcast on 28 March 2018 and sought to rectify some misconsceptions about autism, highlighting a large online study suggesting that autism is vastly under-diagnosed and raising awareness of autism in women and girls.
Emily Swiatek, Employment Training Consultant at the National Autistic Society, gives an insider's perspective of working on the programme and appearing in it on the charity's website. The programme is available to watch on demand.
