Life on the Spectrum

Welcome to Life on the Spectrum

Life on the Spectrum is a UK-based charitable (non-profit) organisation, dedicated to raising awareness of autism, and providing information for autistic people themselves, particularly late-diagnosed adults who find little support elsewhere.

» What is Autism?

If you've never come into contact with autism, you might not know much about it, so here's a brief explanation of what it is, and what it isn't.

» Autism Resources

We are always adding to our resources to help you deal with autism-related issues, from identifying your autism (including Asperger's syndrome), through diagnosis and beyond. We hope to offer understanding and support, with a dash of humour too.

» Bullying & Abuse

Autistic people are particularly vulnerable to abuse, whether from a partner, relative, co-worker, "friend", or anyone else. This section offers information to anyone with concerns.

Written by Leigh Forbes, founder of Life on the Spectrum, the blog includes wry observations, coping strategies, a few rants, and occasional displays of smugness when she gets something right for a change.
