About us

Talk about Autism is an online discussion forum and community for parents, carers and family members of children with autism, people on the spectrum, and professionals. It’s a safe and friendly place to share your story, get support and discuss how autism impacts on your life.

The site launched in February 2009 and since then has grown into one of the most popular online autism communities with friendly and welcoming forums for anyone who wants to discuss autism. Since we began we have also hosted live online Q&As with a range of leading autism figures like Temple Grandin, Ari Ne'eman, Michelle Dawson and Charlotte Moore.

Talk about Autism is provided by Ambitious about Autism, which is the national charity for children and young people with autism.
