About

Overview of Irish Autism Action. Irish Autism Action is a young dynamic, innovative and passionate organisation formed in 2001 which is bringing positive change into the lives of those affected by autism. The range of services which Irish Autism Action provides includes awareness raising, early detection diagnosis, education support, advocacy, counselling, helpline, home based support, transition planning, social housing, research information and advice for families upon receiving diagnosis. Irish Autism Action is an umbrella organisation with over 40 member groups and also individual members. Our members range from the 13 Special Schools for Children with Autism to local support groups and are located in practically every county in Ireland. We have set up Ireland's first National Diagnostic and Assessment Centre known as Solas which is based in Dublin. In April 2009 we launched our National Autism Helpline which is operated by parents. It is Ireland's first autism helpline which provides impartial and confidential information, advice and support for people with an autistic spectrum disorder, their families and professionals. Irish Autism Action's mission is to raise the quality of life of individuals and their families affected by autism through ensuring the provision of highest standards in education, care, support, employment and equality of living opportunities in partnership with families. Help us to be a voice for those who have none.
