As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

“A future of inclusion and acceptance for our autistic children”

A future of inclusion and acceptance for our autistic children.
- The Autism Directory’s vision

This starts with educating people about autism. Better understanding of autism leads to more accepting of autism.

The Autism Directory created a free short Autism Awareness Training presentation for individuals and organizations alike to share and raise awareness and understanding of autism.

It also shows how to communicate with individuals with autism and recognize and understand their behaviours.

It is a great tool for anyone wanting to learn more about autism and become autism friendly.

The Autism Directory is run by parents of children with autism. When they were given the diagnosis they were completely unaware about autism. They knew very little about it, what caused it, or what they could do to help their children. They felt isolated and alone.


The Autism Directory was created because parents should not feel that they are alone. There is help and support out there, but if people don’t know what or where it is, how to access it, then it is of no benefit to them.

We expected a society that understood, but did not anticipate the lack of awareness, often ignorance, that we would have to put up with every day.
