OUR AUTISTIC BRANDING

Globally, the autistic population has unanimously agreed that the colour gold is to represent the AS, as the abbreviation for Autism is AU like the abbreviation for gold on the periodic table. The autistic population has unanimously decided that the symbol to represent the autistic population is that of the infinity loop (endless loop). The infinity loop was chosen as the expression of autistic traits can be limitless and to recognize that no two autistics are alike. Hereby the autistic community and allies recognizes and accepts the diversity and inclusion of all cultures, ethnicities, genders, and sexes into the spectrum.©
