Story

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.

I am excited to have designed a group method aimed directly at bringing all members of the autistic and autism communities together (autistic people, professionals, researchers and support networks included), in order to help improve quality of life for autistic people in a fully participatory way. Autism Dialogue is developed from a well established, similar dialogue method and from experience in both this and in the field of autism. The dialogue method, which is by and for autistic people, is the first of its kind anywhere in the world and continues to receive support from key national and local organisations. Read more about us here .

Numerous Autism Dialogue sessions have taken place since last year. With AD18 (a series of six sessions and a national conference), we're taking a step further and are host to twenty-five delegates from around the country, half of whom are autistic. The programme is now fully booked and we're looking forward to our first session on May 18th. You are welcome to our conference on December 14th where participants will share their own experiences.

We are raising funds here to help pay for room hire and refreshments. Any funds reached over our costs target will be either used for directly related expenses or donated to a local autism charity, with whom we have a close connection. Thank you for your kind donation!

    Hi everyone! We added a new Dialogue day in November because some people suggested it would be great for the whole group to come back together before our conference. Of course! Speaking of the conference, tickets are now available! Woohoo! https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/autism-dialogue-conference-2018-tickets-48731301635 The even better news is as a previous donator YOU don't have to buy one!* (Unless you want to, that is!). Please though, spread the word. This is going to be amazing. Thanks! *Donations made before 28.8.18

    AUTISM DIALOGUE: Improving well-being and quality of life for autistic people can be achieved by increasing understanding of views held by others (in the group) and supporting equality of voices. This will lead to reduction in anxiety and increase in confidence, life and social skills and independence within a more constructive and empowered identity mode. Autistic people will implement and promote the principles and values gained from dialogue into their own lives, families and communities and could also be trained as facilitators.
