Founded in 1962, we are the UK’s leading charity for autistic people and their families. Our goal is to help transform lives, change attitudes and create a society that works for autistic people.

Autism is a spectrum condition, which means that it affects people in different ways. Everyone on the autism spectrum is different. Some autistic children may have an accompanying learning disability, or other conditions such as epilepsy. Children with Asperger syndrome do not usually have learning disabilities, but they may have a learning difficulty such as dylexia or ADHD.

Once we know about your situation, we can:

  • Explain more about autism.
  • Help you explore strategies that could help you or your family.
  • Give you more information and contacts, if that's useful.

Email us or call our Autism helpline to make an appointment to speak to our community care specialist.
