To ensure that children with autism obtain revolutionary and life-changing support to break through their perceived limitations and live to their true and full potential. To ensure that the critical importance of the right sort of Early Intervention is recognised by the public as well as medical professionals and policy makers, and to actively participate in its becoming mainstream by establishing our own specialist clinic in Southern England. To then provide unique and comprehensive support resources for the families of children with autism as they grow, with an innovative online single point of entry to this structure.
We are committed to transforming perceptions of autism worldwide, so that the underlying richness within each autistic person is appreciated, and that this revolutionises the care that is widely available. It is our conviction - increasingly supported by the evidence - that if an appropriate, safe and carefully considered environment is available for each autistic child, they will benefit from the best possibility to live to their potential, the nature of which would stun many who currently consider them to be "disabled".

OUR MISSION & VALUES:
We aim to revolutionise public and professional understanding of autism globally and to empower people with autism to be recognised for and to live to their true and full potential; through the following goals:
Ultimately, we would like to see a world where all people are valued and treated according to their inner essential humanity rather than according to the many labels that each of us could wear (or that could be attached to us). Our specific work is to bring the dream of such a world much closer for people with autism than it currently is.
We have a strong set of values, based around the core values of Unconditional Respect, Courage and Purpose, which we are deeply ingraining in our culture so that working with us is a very positive experience, and can make a huge difference to the worlds of autistic children and those who care for them. The full list of our values can be found on our website and as an attachment to each of our volunteer ads on Charity Job.
