Overview of Autistic Foundation
1. Build a positive foundation for life. 2. Improve life chances through better understanding and management of Autism. 3. Raise awareness & understanding of Autism - change the negative perception of Autism into positive. 4. Bring about positive change and inclusion within policy and practice.
We are committed to the participation agenda and the right of those who use services to have a voice and be responsible for their own life plan and the change they want to achieve for themselves.
All stakeholders are involved in the design, development, and delivery of services. Our team understands first-hand the issues around Autism, sharing their experience and providing skilled support and encouragement.
We use the term “autism” as an umbrella term for all autistic spectrum conditions, including Asperger Syndrome. Many people with autism also have related hidden impairments such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, dyspraxia, dyslexia, dyscalculia and language impairments as well as associated mental health conditions and linked impairments that may not be obvious to other people.
