We are currently creating a number of resources for professionals and supporters of Autistic parents. We hope to be able to offer resources on many different topics and in many different formats. Please contact us if there is anything, in particular, you would find useful. We will send out monthly updates to subscribers and post on our Facebook regularly with updates.
We are also developing resources for Autistic parents, which are available for you to access and signpost on. All articles are written by Autistic parents, Autistic professionals, and Autistic academics. They give valuable insight and perspective to people of other neurotypes supporting Autistic parents.
We will continually be adding articles on Autistic experience to our article collections.
All of the articles on our website are written by Autistic people, many of whom are parents, educators, professionals, and academics.
Most articles will be available to the public and give an opportunity to improve understanding and empathy for Autistic parents.
Part of Autistic Parents UK's purpose is to improve the lives of Autistic parents through education for professionals and services that Autistic parents access and that aim to support them.
Whether your service is directly designed for Autistic people or if you feel that you may interact with Autistic parents regularly APUK can create a training package to meet your needs, please contact us if you would like to discuss options.
