World Autism Acceptance Week 2022

Autism is a complex developmental condition that affects how people perceive the world and interact with others. People with autism may have difficulties with social communication, social interaction, and restricted and repetitive behaviours, activities or interests. Autism can affect people in different ways and can often co-exist with other mental health, behaviour, emotional, and sensory problems, which can make getting the right support more challenging.

According to the National Autistic Society, 1 in 100 people are on the autism spectrum, with roughly 150,000 autistic children in the UK. However, many are undiagnosed.

This World Autism Acceptance Week (28 March – 3 April), we encourage you to explore the learning opportunities available on our website, and to share with your networks. Together we can help change attitudes and work towards creating a society that works for autistic children and young people.

We have gathered a range of FREE learning resources from leading academics, clinicians, and researchers to raise awareness this World Autism Acceptance Week.
