Ambitious about Autism

We stand with autistic children and young people, champion their rights​ and create opportunities. We run specialist education services, an award-winning employment programme and children and young people are at the heart of our charity’s decision-making, policy work and campaigning.   We also use our expertise to deliver training and consultancy to a wide range of organisations to improve awareness and understanding of autism.

This website has a very good parent toolkit section – Parent toolkit | Ambitious about Autism which I recommend using.  Parent toolkit download form | Ambitious about Autism
