Bear with us – we’re updating the content on our website How autism is understood has changed dramatically in recent years. More autistic people are being given space to share their expertise and experience. Increasingly, research is shifting focus toward autism-affirming, practical supports. At Middletown Centre for Autism, we embrace change and continually seek new ways to improve education services and wellbeing for autistic young people. At the heart of our work, we are taking a neurodiversity-informed, autism-affirming approach. We know that some of the language and resources on our website do not reflect this. Our neurodiverse team have been working hard to, first, adapt all of the training and post-graduate courses that we develop and deliver. We are now in the process of adapting our website: updating language or archiving resources that are not autism-affirming. We are a small team, so it will take time. Please bare with us!
