Living Autism has a simple philosophy, we want to help match outstanding autism services with the people who need them. That’s it, that’s what we do.
If you provide any services for individuals with autism, from therapy to employment services and everything in between, you can be listed on the Living Autism website.
With the introduction of direct payments and the personalisation agenda it is becoming more important to provide a wide range of services to meet the needs of the individuals concerned. Local Authorities, parents and individuals with autism are all in need of a wider variety of services, and to find them quickly and easily.
Make it easier for clients to find you
Living Autism provides a portal for Local Authorities, families, individuals with autism and autism professionals to search for autism services on a local and national level.
