I started working for The Autism Directory about a year and a half ago, and i've heard numerous stories from mothers and carers of autistic children of how hard they find it to find a decent hairdresser, shoe shop, restaurant that understands their needs.

We want to help them out, because there are a lot of shops out there who are perfectly willing to help them, it's finding them that's the problem.

Our autism friendly badge (which companies get when they complete the training) gives an indication to any autistic families that this establishment is at least autism aware and understanding of their situation.

Autism Awareness
With autism affecting around 1 in 100 people and diagnosis rates rising (as often as 1 in 40 in boys), we'd like to see awareness of autism spread to the business community. 

After all the families / carers and adults with autism will still need to use services on a daily basis, they need to visit supermarkets for food, hairdressers, clothes shops etc...

A basic level of understanding would make a world of difference to these families and wouldn't bust the bank for a company!

Our website offers basic free autism awareness training, once a business has passed they can also be listed on our directory for autism families to find them, for free!
