The Transforming Autism Project

The Transforming Autism Project

We work with families with young autistic children to transform their relationships and environment and optimise their self-esteem and future prospects. We also reframe autism, offering a unique positive and empowering conception of it. We provide crucial support for young autistic children and their families at an age when we can make a profound life-long difference. Our pioneering First Steps programme (created in association with Norland College and based on a therapeutic framework they created for us) focuses on giving families the tools they need to understand and interact with their autistic children in ways that make them feel understood, affirmed and nurtured, strengthening relationships and facilitating the child’s optimal development so that they are able to fulfil their true potential. Unlike many other autism organisations, we do not focus on the perceived limitations or impairments associated with autism, but instead propose our own unique and empowering conception of it, highlighting the profound sensitivity inherent in the autistic condition as well as other positive aspects which, if nurtured appropriately, can lead to very positive outcomes.
