Autism Network Scotland, based at the University of Strathclyde, connects and communicates with those interested in the field of autism. We collaborate with autism professionals and practitioners, people with autism, their families and carers to identify and share examples of good autism practice, offering a platform for knowledge exchange and promoting a solution-focused approach.
- We are funded by the Scottish Government and a delivery partner in the implementation of the Scottish Strategy for Autism.
- We are part of the National Centre for Autism Studies within the University of Strathclyde.
- We are the facilitators of An Ordinary Life: the Needs, Rights and Aspirations of People with Asperger’s, and of the AS Forum.
Autism Network Scotland is widely recognised as a hub of direction to services for people affected by ASD and as a means of providing information, sharing advice and emotional support. It is seen to be unique and at the leading edge of inter-professional development in this field as there is no known similar autism specific network within Europe.
