Why join us
Treating Autism is a membership society, run on a voluntary basis by parents of children with autism. Although non-members can access to most of the services and support we provide, our members receive many additional benefits, including free book of choice and information-packed ‘members welcome-pack’; free access to a large lending library; reduced conference fees; and special discount offers from trusted businesses, including suppliers of special-diet foods and supplements. Membership fee is only £25 for the first year and £15 per year thereafter. For full details on membership benefits and to join us visit our membership page.
Members also bring benefit to our charity because we ask for their feedback and support in organising and running local parent-to-parent support groups as well as campaigns that help change the political and social landscape that affect our loved ones with autism. Many our our members also contribute to the work of our charity, by volunteering in various roles.
Our members include parents, carers and family members of people with ASD; carers, dieticians, nurses, teachers, speech and language therapists and other professionals; and adults with autism who use various treatments, including biomedical approaches, to improve their functioning, quality of life and learning.
Our membership is growing fast – our UK-wide membership has doubled in the past two years and we are now over 1000 voices strong. Only by standing together can we help our loved ones with autism to have the best lives possible. Join us today.
Treating Autism has provided me with valuable support – I know I’m not alone and that I have somewhere to turn. The support groups are WONDERFUL, conference was GREAT and emails are helpful. Facebook groups also helpful! I use the discounts Treating Autism provides every month! I have been given the resources with which to take our arguments for Treatment to local MP, Community Peadiatrician and various GPs. You’re doing a great job
I cannot express enough just how much Treating Autism has helped me as a parent! Through your literature, suggested reading, documents, parent stories etc, I started my son on a special diet. We also started seeing a professional nutritionist (again, she was suggested to me via Treating Autism links). She diagnosed serious gut issues with my son, and we got him onto a programme of enzymes and supplements. The turn-around for him has been amazing! He is a different child.
We’ve benefitted greatly from the discounts on supplements, so thank you for that. …Hearing conference speakers and meeting other parents who believe they can help their kids, instead of just “accepting” has been so empowering!
I’ve used some of your Co-morbidities literature with NHS professionals. Our new doctor has has been very supportive. The Facebook site has been great. Getting links to the articles you post is really superb. It’s fabulous to read about all the research findings from around the world, and keeps me going on this path.
