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.

The community will also have groups you can join based on your interests and experience. Within these groups, you’ll have access to information, news and resources...

After school childcare

Tue 20 Apr 2021 7:38pm

Hi All, I was wondering whether anyone knew of any good resources (or could even recommend anyone) to find an after school nanny for my daughter. She will be attending an ARP (additional resource provision) in the London Borough of Barnet, and becuase it's attached to a mainstream school, she is not allowed to attend the after school club. 

Any ideas welcome - I've signed up to the usual sites - Koru kids, but I wonder if there are any resources specifically for...

Research project: Information sharing in online groups for people on the autism spectrum

Fri 17 Sep 2021 3:15pm

Hello everyone!

I am looking for current or past users of online groups for people on the autism spectrum to talk to for my PhD research study. My research aims to find out more about autistic people’s experiences of using online groups for finding and sharing information, and their views on how these experiences compare to those in other settings. I hope that this research will help to create better understanding of autistic...
