What we do

Autism-Europe (AE) is an international association whose main objective is to advance the rights of people with autism and to help them improve their quality of life. AE advocates towards European decision-makers to foster a better policy response to the needs of autistic people. AE also strives for more awareness and understanding of autism in society.

We work with our members to:

  • Advocate for the rights of people with autism before the European institutions;
  • Monitor European laws and policies;
  • Promote appropriate care, education, training and employment, living support, adapted medical and social services, professional diagnosis, early intervention, protection from discrimination and better social inclusion to foster the well-being of people on the autism spectrum;
  • Promote the exchange of information, good practices and experience in the field of autism;
  • Promote awareness of autism.

We hold a triannual international congress to share the latest research and best practices regarding areas such as therapies, support, social inclusion and services provision.

We publish our LINK magazine, newsletters, research reports, position papers and toolkits to advocate for the rights of people with autism.

Each year, we collaborate with our members in conducting campaigns to raise awareness about autism on World Autism Awareness Day (April 2).
