National Autistic Society

Founded in 1962, the National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for autistic people and their families. Our goal is to help transform lives, change attitudes and create a society that works for autistic people.

Family life - If you’re autistic or have someone on the autism spectrum in your family, everyday life can be a real challenge. But sometimes it’s the small changes which can help. This section has guidance for family members, including parentspartners and siblings, with real-life stories. We also provide information for grandparents and for the children of autistic parents.

Adult Life - Whether you're old or young, life as an autistic young person or adult can bring particular challenges. Although it may feel like you're alone, help is available. In this section you'll find help with work, ageing, and managing money. You can also read real-life stories from others on the spectrum.

Transition - Moving between different stages of life, such as school, college and work, is especially hard if you find change difficult, as many autistic people do. This section provides advice about strategies and support that can help during key life transitions – including starting or changing schoolleaving school, and starting or leaving college or university.

Your health - Autistic people of every age may need more support when it comes to looking after their health. This section contains help with everyday things like going to the doctor, dentist, or being in hospital, as well as information about mental health, helping children to sleeptoilet training and diet.
