I hope that you will find our website helpful; why not look at the services we offer or get in touch. All work that our charity undertakes is donation-lead, and because of high demand we are in a position where we have to stipulate ‘no donation ~ no service’ (our apologies). We have been operating charitably since October 2008. Funding is essential to the provision of this service. Donations are in the region of £35-£50 per hour. Presently, ALL that is received in terms of income is used to enhance the service directly.
Please note that out of respect for client confidentiality, no client testimonials can be found on this website, but if you would like a testimonial concerning the services we offer, our client representatives, James Read or Sonia Owen will be happy to help; click on the ‘client representatives’ page.

N.B. We are happy to receive you under the auspices of Action for Asperger’s with or without an official diagnosis, but please note that it is our expert opinion that a diagnosis is something that is undertaken by a qualified Clinical Doctor or Clinical Psychologist with a special interest/added qualification in autism/Asperger’s. A diagnosis by anyone else can only be considered as an ‘assessment’. Such an ‘assessment’ will not stand up in a court of law necessarily and neither will it enable you to qualify for Disability Living Allowance, Educational Statement or similar if that is what you are seeking. If you require an official clinical diagnosis, please contact your GP or school Educational Psychologist for further information in the first instance ~ they should be able to point you in the right direction. Alternatively, Action for Asperger’s can help…click on ‘Diagnostic Service‘ for further information.
