4. Finding What’s Next Photo Exhibition
“What’s next?” is a question often thrown around in the special needs community – highlighting the challenging circumstances surrounding autistic youths who leave the sanctuary of special education schools the moment they turn 18 years old. Faced with few options, like costly day-activity centres or staying at home, this stark social isolation and lack of a national support system is likened to a cliff, where caregivers of autistic adults are often left on their own to find a better outcome.
Through a series of photographs, videos and personal effects, Finding What’s Next presents the search for a future through the stories of 12 individuals and their families, gathered by three parent-advocates of autistic children. The process involved interviews with fellow parents and sheds light on the daily lives and societal challenges that autistic adults face.
