Living with autism isn’t easy, but finding out all about it should be. Some estimate that 1 in 100 people have autism. Others say it’s more like 1 in 88. Whatever the real figures, the good news is that there’s lots of support and advice out there to help you make sense of the world of autism. Charities, support groups, and specialist service providers, are all ready to share advice and experience whenever you need it. Autismlinks.co.uk is dedicated to making those helpful and sometimes vital links, it covers who to talk to, where to go and contains lots of helpful advice all in one place.

Our website is constantly growing and improving as we learn about new services and new resources become available. With the help and support we get from parents, carers, professionals and other services providers alike we aim to continue growing and always welcome any feedback as to what we might do to further improve Autismlinks as a valuable resource. Suggestions and feedback can be emailed directly to ourselves via the 'Help us grow - Suggest a link' option at the top right of this page.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and we hope you found what you were looking for.
