Wouldn't it be great if autistic people, families and professionals could access the autism support they need in less than 60 seconds?
We think so too! That's why we created The Autism Plan.
Here, you can:
✓ Watch online autism support videos.
✓ Chat privately with our autism consultants.
✓ Join our supportive global online autism community.
Whatever you choose, our autism support means no referrals, no waiting lists, and no need to move from your sofa.
We started The Autism Plan specifically for autistic people, their families and professionals working in the field of autism and looking for accessible and relevant support, strategies, and education to help.
Anna is an experienced Autism Consultant with a background in Speech and Language Therapy and autism and a history of managing the Autism Helpline at the National Autistic Society (NAS).
Nicola has a daughter who is autistic, so she has first hand experience of the very unique challenges and delights of living with autism. She has spent the last 15+ years in the legal sector running her own firm for 10 years, and supports entrepreneurial women in business as Regional Director of The Athena Network.
Deborah is a proud mother of two autistic teenage boys and has dedicated the last 15 years of her life trying to change the world’s perceptions of autism. An author, campaigner, speaker, and parent representative on The All Party Parliamentary Group for Autism, Deborah received an MBE in recognition of her outstanding contribution to global autism awareness.

Our Online Support Plans
We have Support Plans for People, Families and Professionals
The Autism Plan: For Families
When you receive your autism diagnosis, wouldn’t it be amazing if all the advice, information and knowledge to help you know what to do next was available to you right then and there in the comfort of your own home with no referrals, no form filling, no waiting lists and no time off work?
Well that’s exactly what we’ve created for you!
Our transformational family focused Course: “Autism: Everything We Wish We’d Known” is packed full of everything we wish we’d known when our children were diagnosed. We’ve collaborated with an inspiring collection of autistic influencers, professionals, parents and people to empower and inspire you to confidently take those next steps on your autism journey.
We know how it feels to be given a diagnosis, a label, and no practical help. It doesn’t have to be that way for your family.
The Autism Plan: For People
It’s our mission to change the global perception of autism, so that autistic people don’t feel the need to mask their wonderful uniqueness in order to fit in with society’s ideal of ‘normal.’
It is well documented that autistic masking can lead to burnout and mental health issues - with devastating impact on those people, their families and society at large.
Our Support Plans focus on empowering teenagers and adults to feel safe, calm and confident in coping with their emotional regulation, varied social situations, the demands of the workplace and society, and independent living.
The Autism Plan: For Professionals
Are you an employer or a manager? Do you work alongside autistic people? Are your working relationships productive, thriving and fulfilling? If you answered ‘yes’ to all three questions, congratulations!
These days, diversity of thinking and approach in the workplace is highly sought after by businesses looking to stay ahead of the competition, but getting the most from your team at work requires understanding, honesty and and creating the right environment for performance and success.
There are many misconceptions about autism, but what is commonly known is that autistic people often approach situations differently, and autistic employees can bring a depth of diversity, focus and thinking which many businesses actively look for and embrace.
This Course gives employers and managers the skills, confidence and know-how to work well with autistic colleagues and value and harness the amazing contributions they make.
