“I didn’t set out to do anything. My autism advocacy work is simply a response to the situation I found myself in when they said my son with autism was ‘uneducable’. No child is uneducable and all people with autism can learn, contribute and live fulfilling lives.”

Liza Aziz is a documentary filmmaker and founder of Action in Autism, a non-profit organisation that provides support, information and an early intervention centre for families in KwaZulu-Natal that are affected by autism.
