The organisation has two aims. The first is to counsel and emotionally support anyone aged three years and upwards that has a formal or suspected diagnosis of autism, autism spectrum or Asperger’s syndrome and who is going through a difficult time. Often the mainly neurologically typical world can be experienced as abrasive and harsh by the autistic individual and getting understanding and support for these hurt feelings is essential to healing.
The second aim, but no less important, is to counsel and emotionally support anyone who is in a close relationship with an autistic individual; for example, if you are a parent and find that you are having to frequently advocate for your child to educators that are not “autism aware” can feel stressful and draining.
