Client of the Month - Autistica UK

This World Autism Awareness Day, Autistica is launching a Lifesavers Fund to back vital research into epilepsy and suicide which is so common in autism.

Our Client of the Month for February is Autistica.

Autistica is the UK's leading autism research charity funding groundbreaking science to understand the causes of autism, improve diagnosis, and develop new treatments and interventions. All the research that Autistica funds is guided by families living with autism to ensure that the work that we do has the biggest impact on peoples lives.

Help Autistica to save lives this World Autism Awareness Day: 2 April 2016.

World Autism Awareness Day

Autism is a lifelong developmental disorder affecting at least 1 in 100 people in the UK. Alongside the core communication difficulties associated with autism often come even greater challenges. This World Autism Awareness Day we are launching a Lifesavers Fund to back vital research into epilepsy and suicide which is so common in autism. People with autism and intellectual disability die thirty years younger than the typical population and those with less severe autism die 12 years younger. Virtually no research has been done anywhere in the world to determine how to treat epilepsy or suicidal tendencies in autistic people. With groundbreaking science we are going to change this and we need your help.

Follow our campaign on social media and donate to help those at risk of dying unnecessarily to live full and happy lives.
