Child Autism UK helps children with autism achieve their potential. We provide services to enable children to overcome difficulties with communication, learning and life skills and give families the techniques and strategies to cope with autism through the use of Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA). Child Autism UK also provides training and a network for ABA professionals working with young children.

Autism, according to the NHS Information Centre, is estimated to affect around 1% of the UK population. That’s 700,000 people who live with the condition. Autism is a lifelong condition with no cure but the difficulties people with autism face in life can be significantly managed through intervention at an early age. Skill and coping strategies learned as children have lifetime relevance and can make an enormous difference to their ability when they become adults with autism to make the most of their lives.

Child Autism UK has been providing services in the UK for over 20 years.Under our previous name ‘Peach’, we were instrumental in establishing ABA in the UK. We have a very dedicated team that continues to provide excellent ABA Services, and information and advice to parents. We want every child with autism to reach their potential. We really value partnerships working with families, schools, other professionals and ABA practitioners.

Although there is no cure for autism there are treatments and courses of support that can be put in place. Child Autism UK promotes early behavioural intervention to ensure children learn life skills and coping mechanisms that will equip them for life within mainstream education and adult life. Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is the technique used by Child Autism UK. ABA used within a properly designed programme at an early age can help transform the lives of children with autism and their families.

Child Autism UK is an autism charity based in Ascot, Berkshire which provides information and support for parents of children with autism.

The organisation was known as Peach – Parents for the Early Intervention of Autism in Children from foundation to it’s rebrand as Child Autism UK in 2015. The rebrand reflects more closely the role of the organisation providing advice and services to families of children with autism.

One of the main services that Child Autism UK offers is a helpline for parents. Many parents find it difficult to get answers to their questions when their children have problems; they do not know where to turn. Child Autism UK provides information packs and importantly puts parents in contact with other parents who have been through the same processes and now have a positive outlook. When parents first get a diagnosis or feel their child has difficulties they often feel bereft, mourning the child they thought they had. Child Autism UK shows them that significant progress can be made, and helps them move forward.

Child Autism UK has a team of clinicians who work throughout the UK providing behavioural programmes in homes and in schools which enhance intellectual, academic, social and emotional behaviours so that children can take better advantage of opportunities in their community and need less support as they grow older. A mum recently told us, “We feel we were given an enormous amount of support and care. You took away the fear”.

Autism is a complex developmental disability which is also a lifelong condition. It affects the way a child communicates and relates to the world around them. It’s described as a spectrum disorder, which means that children can be affected to different degrees, some severely and others in more subtle ways. All children with the condition will be affected by a range of impairments, which involves all, or some of the following areas of difficulty:

Social interaction – they find it hard to interact socially with other children, or to make friends. Often having problems recognising or understanding others’ emotions and feelings, and expressing their own.

Imagination – they have trouble engaging in imaginative play and tend to prefer more repetitive and rigid activities. Children with autism may not grasp the concept of danger or handle new situations well.

Communication – they have difficulties developing speech or meaningful communication, such as understanding gestures, facial expression or tone of voice. Our children may take language very literally or find it hard getting the point of a joke.

Children with autism may experience sensory over-sensitivity or under-sensitivity which prevents them understanding the world they live in: what they see, hear or sense. They often prefer a fixed routine, are averse to change and exhibit disturbances in behaviour, sleeping and eating patterns. Each child has their own unique perspective of the world. Many children have particular strengths and abilities such as an excellent memory. Some grow up to be gifted artists, musicians and writers.

The causes of autism are still uncertain.

There is no known cure but early intervention helps a child grow up to reach their full potential.
