Update on the SEND Review 

The Government’s long-awaited SEND Review proposals are out and it’s time young people and families to have their say. Find out more about what’s in the review and what it could mean for children and young people with SEND.


Our policy and campaigning work

We commission research and use our own evidence to help policy-makers shape legislation that will support young people in education, employment and beyond. 

The autistic young people we work with play an active role in shaping our policy and campaigning priorities.

Based on research, direct evidence from autistic children and young people, and our expertise in delivering autism education, we respond to government proposals and raise issues in Parliament. Our briefings and consultation responses highlight areas of concern and propose solutions.

We work in partnership with those who share our ambitions for autistic children and young people including universities and other charities. We are active members of the Special Educational Consortium, the Positive Behaviour Support Alliance and the Disabled Children's Partnership.

We also work closely with Parliamentarians, sitting on the advisory group for the All Party Parliamentary Group on Autism and the Westminster Commission on Autism.
