Welcome to UK Autistic
More than 1 in 100 autistic people are at risk of being excluded from their communities simply because they're misunderstood.
We aim to raise awareness, improve understanding and increase tolerance by building communities into which autistic people can more effectively integrate and flourish, using their unique personalities and skills as the assets that they are; we can all do something to change the way autistic people are viewed. And slowly, one step at a time we will get there. UK Autistic is dedicated to this for as long as it takes.
Augmentative Alternative Communication Devices
In 2018, UK Autistic supplied almost 2500 Augmentative Alternative Communication (AAC) devices to mainly non verbal children and young adults.
In 2019 we plan to DOUBLE the amount of lives that we transform with this cutting edge technology. It’s the modern way that PECS (Picture Exchange Communication System) is utilised. Such has been the success and good reviews from the beneficiaries that we are planning to extend the service into 2019 and beyond.
If you know somebody who may benefit from one of these devices, please CONTACT US HERE
