This summer, the John and Lorna Wing Foundation launched the “Information Autism” website- www.informationautism.org. It provides impartial, scientifically accurate and accessible information on autism and interventions designed to help autistic people. It is aimed at anyone with an interest in autism, including autistic people, families, parents and carers, professionals, researchers, service providers, policy makers and the mainstream media.
Information Autism replaces the former Research Autism website, and aims at providing the public with information about autism and related issues. This website provides up-to-date, scientifically reliable information about autism. It includes information about a wide range of treatments, therapies and services used to help them. It also includes information about some of the issues, problems and challenges facing autistic individuals. The website has been designed to act as a gateway to some of the other resources on autism around the world. Information Autism also includes a Glossary section as well as Publications and Links section. All information is provided in EasyRead and Text Version making the website accessible.
You can find four main information categories in the website:
- Autism, Definitions, Diagnosis
- Issues and Challenges
- Interventions, Treatments and Therapies
- Our Evaluations of Treatments and Therapies
The website cannot advise you which intervention you should use. However, using the website you can find a reasonable amount of information about each of the most commonly used interventions.
