Welcome to Aucademy©

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

Thank you to all the wonderful learners and educators who nominated Aucademy in the ITV national diversity awards, 2021.

“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.”
