• In order to reduce risks to our members and team, we have cancelled our group sessions up to and including April 4 2020. Our staff are now working remotely and we are setting up call diverts so that we can continue to offer our helpline and general enquiries services. If you need help or advice please email us at enquiries@autismbeds.org. We aim to respond to emails within 48 hours on any working week day. Responses may be delayed, because we are receiving a high volume of enquiries but we will get back to you as soon as we can.Find out more

🤩🥰 It's World Autism Awareness Week! 🤩😍
Today's letter is A.
A is for Autism.
Did you know that Autism is a developmental disability and NOT a mental health condition? It's also not a learning disability. Autism tends to affect social communication and interaction, social imagination and sensory processing. One of our members describes being autistic as "listening to Radio 2 when everyone else is listening to Radio 1". It can make interacting with others incredibly challenging.
It's estimated that 1 in one hundred people are autistic which means that in Bedfordshire alone, there are roughly 6,690 autistic individuals living in this county.
