In this thread, I will be adding a series of six videos which I made (in a rush), providing an overview of the four main focus areas which I address in workshops, at conferences, in training events, and so on.
They are MY four focus areas for advocacy, which doesn't mean that they are THE priority areas which everyone else should have.
In longer presentations (on health particularly), I often add in topics like masking and suicide risk, and sex+gender+sexuality, but I prefer other autistic co-presenters to cover those topics. In the Communication section, I then also include material provided by non-speakers.
Each video is an unscripted, uncut (except for the first and last few seconds) first take, and I expect to revise and re-take these at some point when our studio is rebuilt at the new office.
I apologise for the quality of sound and definitely also for not pausing often enough. There's also some subject matter which I think should have been in, but which I left out (especially in PART 2). I don't intend to caption these - I will leave that for the studio versions.
I made the videos in response to a request from a professional in the AAC industry, to provide some "autistic insight" for their staff training (hence deadline-driven rush). I'm not an AAC expert.
The videos are not comprehensive, but provide an overview with a few zoomed-in examples.

There are six videos in the series, covering four focus areas for advocacy.
