Understanding Autism

Free public information resources to help children and communities understand adversity, difficult feelings and conditions such as autism. It has a range of resources for parents to understand autism and their younger child better.

Wherever possible, we have identified and included resources from the UK. However, some are from non-UK organisations. These have been through the same quality assurance process and have been included as the content is still valid and useful. If you would like to suggest a UK alternative, please let us know.
