We were delighted to research and write two information leaflets for autism research charity Autistica. New research has shown that people on the autism spectrum are more likely to have poor health and die young. These leaflets are designed to help educate people about two of the most common problems: epilepsy and mental health. It was a tricky brief in terms of getting the tone just right for multiple audiences - primarily people with autism, but also their parents/carers and the general public. We had to use the plainest English possible.
“Rebecca did a great job meeting some tight deadlines for two information e-leaflets for Autistica. She pulled together material from a wide variety of sources, presenting the information with an autistic audience in mind. She was very sensitive in the way she approached some difficult subjects, whilst keeping the language appropriately plain. We'll definitely involve her in future projects.”
