A warm welcome

Welcome to Autism Oxford UK.

Our mission is to spread awareness of the realities of life on the autism spectrum and support the development of autism services, especially those provided by Autistic professionals.

We do this through our blended team of peer support practitioners, nurses, speech and language and occupational therapists. Using lived experience alongside trained professionals knowledge is a powerful source of support!

We offer training and service development support, to ensure autistic people needs are understood and adjustments are made to mainstream settings. We are great supporters of the Paula McGowan campaign to make autism awareness mandatory for all health and social care settings!

We also offer autism assessments, support and interventions to all ages and their support networks. The blend of our multi displinary team ensure we are able to support various needs.
