Kaner Flex: #ThisIsMe
- From the section BodyPositive
Here at BodyPositive we've been telling the inspiring stories of people who are bodypositive - celebs, athletes and also people just like you.
Over the next few weeks we'll be posting videos and stories about people's real lives - what they struggle with, and what body positivity means to them. Every week we'll be featuring people with different experiences of life - and tagging them with #ThisIsMe.
This week we are exploring all things autism.
Kaner Flex is 20. He's an exceptional dancer. He has appeared dancing on television shows Britain's Got Talent and Got to Dance. He is also autistic.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.
Autism is much more common than many people think. There are around 700,000 people in the UK living with autism - that's more than 1 in 100. If you include their families, autism touches the lives of 2.8 million people every day.
