The National Autistic Society My Baba 23 July, 2013 Expert The National Autistic Society is the UK’s leading charity for people affected by autism. We now know that more than one in 100 people has autism – that’s around half a million people in the UK today. We also know that, alone, we can only reach and support a small proportion of these people and their families. That’s why we’ll not only continue to give people and their families the very best information and support possible, we’ll focus on making sure that everyone responsible for supporting people with autism has the knowledge, skills and resources they need to work more efficiently and effectively. We want a world where all people living with autism get to lead the life they choose.
