Autism and Financial Difficulty
Perhaps our biggest passion at ASC is supporting individuals on the autistic spectrum. We recognise that many people with autism (and their families) may experience financial hardship and therefore find it difficult to access paid supports. There can be many different reasons for this (for example, many adults with autism are underemployed given their skills and knowledge - see NAS report here).
Therefore we have decided to offer individual supports on a sliding scale depending on an individual's ability to pay.
Please contact us if you have any queries around this.
In order to increase our capacity to offer supports we have created a 'Hardship Fund' which will be funded by a percentage of our fees for workshops and presentations to organizations.
10% of all consultancy fees from organizations go into a fund designed to help us provide supports at a reduced rate to people on the spectrum.
