Now I Know – Women and non-binary people with Autism

The Now I Know campaign features powerful photography and films of both autistic women and non-binary people from across the country, who share their experiences of late diagnosis of autism. The campaign was inspired by the words of Dawn Mills, who was diagnosed at the age of 56 and features in the campaign. She said: “I always knew who I was, now I know why I am.”

The campaign was created by the National Autistic Society in partnership with the teams of world-renowned photographer Rankin and creative agency Ogilvy Health.
