Creating a safe haven for autistic families providing the best information and advice, to support autistic people to be the best that they can be.
- Nadene Martin, Founder
Voices for Autism was founded by Nadene Martin in 2015 after her son was diagnosed with ASD. Nadene felt there was very little support for parents and carers dealing with what she was going through. Keen to meet people facing similar challenges, she established Voices of Autism and created a solid network and support system for the families of autistic people between the ages of 0-25.
What is Autism?
4 Facts About Autism
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability that affects how a person communicates with and relates to other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.
Autism is a spectrum condition which means that people with autism have a range of difficulties in common, but the condition will affect them in different ways.
There are around 700,000 autistic adults and children in the UK alone. Many people with autism are able to live independent lives, but others need extra support, and long-term specialist support.
Autism is often diagnosed alongside some other conditions, here are a few examples: ADHD, fragile X syndrome, down syndrome, hearing impairment, dyspraxia, or epilepsy.
