Children and adults with autism can suffer from social isolation, a lack of social opportunities and employment. To address this Open Up To Autism works with organisations and support groups to increase their understanding of autism and how their environment may need to be adjusted. This is to help give autistic people the same choice and opportunities as anyone else.
For some people on the autism spectrum due to their social anxieties it can make it difficult for them to access somewhere new. For some the sensory sensitivities can make it really difficult for them to visit somewhere or something which they are really interested in. We would like to work with you to take the mystery out and show how it can be done.
We also deliver parent talks to help parents understand their autistic child better and to offer strategies to help them help their child.
