Our Autism Helpline provides impartial, confidential information and advice for people with autism spectrum disorders and their families and carers. 

Please note that due to the tube strike action, we are closing the Autism Helpline on Wednesday 26 August from 10am-4pm. We will re-open as usual on Thursday 27 August from 10am-4pm. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience. You may be able to find some helpful information on our find answers online page. 

What can't we do?

The Helpline cannot:

  • advise you on legal issues
  • advise you on medical issues
  • take on your case or act as your advocate
  • offer a counselling service (we do maintain a database of counsellors who may be able to help you)
  • offer a phone back service
  • actively refer people on
  • advise you about conditions which are not part of the autistic spectrum.
