About Beyond Autism
The causes of autism aren’t fully known. With no physical signs, autism is often known as ‘the hidden disability’. Beyond Autism was founded in 2000 to transform the lives of vulnerable children living with severe autism. Using an approach known as Verbal Behaviour the charity makes breakthroughs in communication that dramatically improve their ability to cope with a confusing world.
Based in south west London, Beyond Autism helps those with autism lead fuller lives and enables families to cope with the disorder so that they can see beyond to a brighter future.
