Prior’s Court School launch song for World Autism Awareness Week
To celebrate this year’s World Autism Awareness Week, one of our Artsmark schools, Prior’s Court, shared a new song – Let Me Shine.
All of the young people featured have profound autism and moderate to severe learning difficulties; many are non-verbal. With the support of staff members at the school, they were able to record the song to give a voice to everyone on the autistic spectrum.
“Please share to support our call for acceptance and understanding.” (Prior’s Court School)
In the words of the track itself, the young people ask: “Accept me for who I am and let me shine” – a sentiment we are very much behind!
