Introduction to Incude Autism

We are the Ambitious about Autism Youth Patrons:  a group of autistic 16 - 25 year olds from across England. Some of us sit on the Youth Council, some on advisory board for external projects and others are on the Ambitious Youth Network and help us create content, run campaigns and lobby for change. We volunteer our time and expertise to help make the ordinary possible for other autistic young people through the projects we run.

For youth group leaders and volunteer

The Include Autism toolkit was developed for those running youth groups or clubs to better understand autism and support autistic young people. All the tips, tools and resources were designed with our Youth Patrons. As part of the toolkit there are top tips and advice, practical resources you can download and use in your practice and lots of ideas to help you make your group inclusive.

We think extra-curricular activities and youth groups are an extremely important part of young people’s lives. They allow young people to make new friends, be part of a community, develop skills.... and have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing. And it’s every young person’s right to go

How to use the Include Autism toolkit

We wanted the Include Autism toolkit to be as useful to as many people as possible. It opens with information about  autism and then splits into resiurces for youth group leaders, parents and autistic young people.

You can download one specific section or all of the sections. The toolkit is editable so that you can fill in section with your own information.
