On the 6 August, TreeHouse, the national charity for autism education, launched a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of early intervention for children with autism and to tell parents and carers about talkaboutautism.org.uk.
The campaign contains three different images showing everyday situations that families living with autism can find challenging, appear alongside the message, “The longer a child with autism goes without help, the harder they are to reach.” 300 outdoor posters will go up across England, Scotland and Wales during August and adverts will also be placed in national and London press.
TreeHouse believe that through appropriate education, it is possible to transform the lives of young people with autism and the lives of their families. The campaign website offers families useful information about autism education and crucially, connects them with other families affected by autism.
To mark World Autism Awareness Day and the launch of talk about autism, Professor Tanya Byron has written a piece about why she thinks this community is so important for parents of children with autism.
