provides a Responsive Communication service to autistic children and adults across the UK.
The Caldwell Autism Foundation is building a network of skilled practitioners across the UK to provide Responsive Communication support to people on the autistic spectrum. In addition, we work to raise awareness of the communication and sensory difficulties experienced by people on the autistic spectrum. We actively promote the rights and entitlements of autistic people as valued members of their community and of society as a whole.
We have recently been awarded funding to provide a Responsive Communication Service for Autistic Children and Young People in Carmarthenshire. This twelve-month pilot project will investigate the effectiveness of a new way of delivering our Responsive Communication service using a combination of small-group workshops and home visits. We are very excited to be starting this piece of work! To find out more, please visit our Responsive Communication Pilot Project page.
