Our award-winning social change work helps politicians, businesses and the general public to understand autism better. Our policy campaigns help to make sure that new Government policies show a real understanding of autism. Our Access Award helps businesses and services of all sizes to become welcoming to autistic people. And we are soon to launch a new initiative to educate millions of the public about autism, based on the real experiences of thousands of autistic people and their families and friends.
We can only do what we do because of the support of thousands of people who give their time and money to help autistic people get more support, understanding and appreciation. Can you help? Sign up to donate, volunteer, become a member or campaign today.
We are a charity in Bradford/Airedale and Wharfedale who are currently running 2 training courses within Bradford for children who have a diagnosis of Autism.
The first one, Earlybird, is for children who are preschool age (2-5). EarlyBird Plus is for children aged 4-9 and a place is also offered to the school setting to support the family with a consistency of approach between home and school.
We have been running the Earlybird Plus for the last 15 years or so in Bradford alongside SALT, the ASD Team at SEN support and various other professionals. the course is free of charge. We have also recently received funding to do the Earlybird course for pre school age children and we may be able to provide a creche should the families need one to attend the course.
