About Organisation

We're here to help the 700,000 autistic people in the UK and their families. Be it running specialist schools, campaigning for improved rights or training companies on being more autism-friendly, we are dedicated to transforming lives and changing attitudes. We are here to transform lives and change attitudes to help create a society that works for autistic people.

We try doing this by:

  • Providing advice and guidance on the challenges autistic people and their families face
  • Having an online discussion forum for people on the autism spectrum, their carers and relatives as well as professionals working in the field to meet online and share their thoughts and experiences
  • Developing Cullum Centres to help students on the autism spectrum to thrive in a mainstream school setting as well as providing 4 independent Specialist Schools for autistic young people aged 4-22
  • Running an Education Rights Helpline which provides general information about educational rights and entitlements, as well as advice on specific topics such as getting extra help in school, assessments, education plans, reviews or school transport
