Our mission is to provide unbiased good quality information on Autistic Spectrum Conditions to families and professionals supporting children or adults with these conditions.
Please note that we do not have centres in Bangalore. We do not provide any services and this website is not attached to any particular centre or services. We do not have any commercial interest. Our effort is to bring information to support and guide people like yourself.
Please watch a video that explain what Autism is.
When a child or an adult has special needs like Autism, families often struggle to get the right help. Lack of good quality information is the major barrier to finding the right help. Right help can transform the life of an individual and family. However one needs to be aware that the internet provides a wide range of information, some very authentic and valuable, but some can be misleading. There are magical remedies advertised on the internet with sometimes even the promise of curing Autism.
Professionals too struggle often to get unbiased information on Autistic Spectrum Conditions. The evidence base on the interventions for autism is only coming out slowly.
We are both Psychiatrists specialised in the assessment and management of developmental conditions like Autism. We practice in the UK where we are actively involved in research, clinical practice and service development. We both, however, have roots in Bangalore and are often approached by families when we are in Bangalore for more information on Autism and other developmental disorders. This site is an effort to bring together all the information that families and professionals would need in supporting children/adults with Autism. We would value your comments and information to make this a success. Please note that we do not have direct information about all the centres listed here nor can we check the accuracy of information put as comments by people like yourself on this blog. Always use the information as general guidance and check out the centres by speaking to people who use the service.
