At MAIN we support people, not ‘cases’ or ‘numbers’.

Our team includes dedicated parents, who have each individually adapted to living with Autism in its various forms. The MAIN team has the skills, experience and motivation to offer first hand support and advice to people of all ages living with Autism and Attention-Related Conditions.

Our ambition is to change society’s perceptions of Autism, and to increase understanding of the challenges and opportunities that living with Autism brings.
