About Us

The Autism Network is a collective of independent professionals with a background in working with autistic and neurodiverse people.

Each member is available for individually contracted work and the services each member can provide are detailed on their page. If you are not sure which member of the team is the best fit for your needs, contact us and we will get back to you to discuss with you how we can help.

For larger contracts more than one member of the team can be involved. (e.g. multi layered strategic work, large training programmes or development work) . Contact us and we can discuss how a team approach can help.

Our Principles

Although we work independently all members of the Network work closely together and are united by the following simple principles and beliefs:

  • Autistic people can learn, achieve, be successful and contribute greatly to society
  • An understanding of autism and a celebration of difference is needed across society
  • A holistic approach is essential to support people effectively
  • Input and leadership from autistic people is essential to the success of  any training, strategy, research or service delivery

Our History

The Autism Network began in early 2022 with the desire of members of Autism Network Scotland (ANS) to continue some of the important work ANS had delivered over the previous 15 years. This includes working as an independent organisation that operates in partnership with individuals and organisations to help autistic people, their families and those that support them.

The Autism Network team continue to work in partnerships to build an informed, inclusive society, celebrating difference and supporting those who need it.
