Talk about autism

About our community

Welcome to Talk about Autism - the UK's largest online autism community!

Our community is a safe space, which provides an invaluable source of peer support. Members can post questions, provide information and share experiences with those who have first-hand experience or a deep connection with autism. This community is not a help or crisis service.

This community is moderated by a small team of Ambitious about Autism staff during office hours, Monday – Friday 9am – 5pm. It is not moderated outside of office hours. This includes evenings, weekends and bank holidays.

Our community guidelines were last updated in April 2020. If you’re an existing or new member of Talk about Autism, please take a few moments to read about how you can get the most from being part of our community.

Talk about Autism was created in partnership with TalkTalk.
