Autism Dialogue is a service that supports and encourages a universal attitudinal shift for widest acceptance of autism and empowerment of autistic people. We provide safe, fully participatory Professional Dialogue spaces for the whole autism community, for maximum knowledge transfer and experience sharing, as well as dissemination of knowledge through presentations, workshops and collaborations. Our aim is to improve quality of life for all autistic people and improve cohesion of professional, research and support networks.

Autism is a phenomenon which raises far-reaching questions into the nature of self, science, health, politics, cultures and society, with a wide range of often competing debates, theories and ideologies. Autism Dialogue, utilising radical methods of talking and thinking together in a truly participatory environment, provides the opportunity for a better common and more dynamic understanding of Autism.  Participants from all backgrounds and experiences will be empowered by new thinking, leading to increased self-knowledge, greater professional and community cohesion, a more inclusive and enriched society and perhaps most importantly, an improved autistic life-experience.
