Around 700,000 people in the UK are on the autism spectrum. Together with their families, this means autism is a part of daily life for 2.8 million people.
If you are affected by autism as a child, an adult or as a family, the society can provide local specialist help, information and care across Scotland.
Their wide range of personalised quality support at home and in the community, both in groups and one-to-one, is there to help you.
Their branches in Scotland offer families and autistic people help and mutual support. The employment team support autistic people in work and their employers. They also have an autism-specific school, Daldorch House School.

We are delighted to welcome along an old friend of the club, John McIllhagger, who will explain the history and origins of the highway code.
John is something of an expert in this field as an adviser on transport management schemes for planners.
He is often called as an expert witness for planning applications.
Our incoming President Ronnie Munn (who previously led the club as President 40 years ago!) reprises the role and outlines his thoughts and plans for the Rotary Year 2017-18.
