Objectives

To ensure that children with autism obtain revolutionary and life-changing support to break through their perceived limitations and live to their true and full potential.  To ensure that the critical importance of the right sort of Early Intervention is recognised by the public as well as medical professionals and policy makers, and to actively participate in its becoming mainstream by establishing our own specialist clinic in Southern England.  To then provide unique and comprehensive support resources for the families of children with autism as they grow, with an innovative online single point of entry to this structure.

We are committed to transforming perceptions of autism worldwide, so that the underlying richness within each autistic person is appreciated, and that this revolutionises the care that is widely available.  It is our conviction - increasingly supported by the evidence - that if an appropriate, safe and carefully considered environment is available for each autistic child, they will benefit from the best possibility to live to their potential, the nature of which would stun many who currently consider them to be "disabled".  

Please also view our CEO’s TED talk, The Beautiful Reality of Autism, which presents the conceptual backbone to our mission and activities.

Activities

Our activities will be as follows:

 

EARLY INTERVENTION:

This is our initial focus and will include the following:

  • The book Transforming Autism is currently available and provides a thorough but clear and accessible entry point to our approach to Early Intervention in Autism, which is based on attachment parenting and the provision of containment.  It describes Guy Shahar's journey with his autistic son, and a detailed description of their treatment at a specialist clinic, written in such a way as to give other parents powerful tools to implement immediately.
  • Preparing for the launch of a pioneering clinic for immersive treatment of families with young autistic children (aimed for launch in 2020) based on and in association with the extremely successful Mifne Clinic in Israel (also a charity)
  • Extensive global information campaign on the great potential for transformation and fulfilment for children with autism, and on the means to realise that potential.
  • Concurrent policy activities will accompany this campaign, so that care provision can be significantly influenced.

 

ONGOING SUPPORT:

  • The creation of a comprehensive one-stop online "Hub", where parents and carers can find a huge range of carefully compiled and curated advice, resources and recommendations on all issues related to the care of autistic children.
  • The production of our own high quality and low priced visual aids to support autistic children in daily life.

 

TRANSITION TO ADULTHOOD:

This strand of our activities will come at a later date, and will include (partially through the Hub but also through other more hands-on means), comprehensive support for a child with autism approaching teenage and adulthood.  It will cover all forms of relationships, preparation for employment (including work with colleges and employers not only on how to recruit, but also on how to create a working environment that can fulfil and retain autistic people), bullying, anxiety, regulation of emotions, independent living and more.
