Speakup for Autism are a unique and lively group of people who work closely with members of Speakup Self Advocacy and people with learning difficulties.
The group was started in 2012 to give a unique voice to people with Autism. The group has a committee of 8 people who meet regularly to discuss and plan work which includes:
- Work with the universities of Hallam, Sheffield and Manchester Met. Our experts work in co-production with researches from these universities to develop better services for people with autism.
- They also have strong links with NAS and train other organisations, health care professionals and people with autism in how to communicate in a meaningful way with people with autism.
- Self Advocacy projects which look at working and training professionals in communication skills and enabling them to support people with Autism better.
- Link with Healthcare professionals to plan and deliver projects aimed at improving the health and well-being of people with Autism.
The group operates from a base within Speakup Self Advocacy in Rotherham and is supported by the Charity to meet its goals.
