Welcome to Aucademy©

At Aucademy© we are a new home for Autistic learning and the education of non-autistic people about Autistic experience

Aucademy has been nominated! Please consider voting for us in the ITV national diversity awards, and please share.

“The best way to learn about autism is from Autistic educators. Therefore, we founded Aucademy – an Autistic-led educative platform comprised entirely of Autistic academics, researchers, teachers, speakers, trainers, and advocates. Here at Aucademy we voluntarily educate for Autistic and non-autistic learners regarding the Autistic experience.”
