Resources for autistic adults

Autism and Health Resources

For our Health Access Project, we have made a number of free tools that can help you communicate your healthcare needs, including pain and mental fatigue.

Leeds Autism Alert Card

Leeds Autism AIM, West Yorkshire Police and other local organisations have coproduced a free autism alert card. The card can be used to help communicate your needs and how being autistic affects you in stressful situations.

Strategy Guides

We have made a series of guides on topics such as employment, communication and health with tips and links to useful resources, all made by our staff team.
