Guy Shahar's TED talk, The Beautiful Reality of Autism, lays out what The Transforming Autism Project is all about at heart. You can also read it here.
What if we could see beyond labels?:
Help us to transform the lives and prospects for young children with autism, by:
- Raising awareness of the possibilities available
- Working towards establishing our revolutionary early intervention clinic
- Creating an online portal for critical support to parents and carers
We are a brand new UK Charity (registration number:1173134), committed to revolutionising public and professional understanding of autism globally, and to ensuring that autistic people are recognised for their great potential to live rich, fulfilling integrated lives that contribute greatly to society, and that they are empowered to do so, especially through early intervention. We also aim to provide inspiration and practical support for families, schools and others to achieve a transformation in their children's quality of life through the creation of an optimal environment and relationship with them.
We were founded in 2016 by Guy Shahar, author of the book, Transforming Autism, which details his family's journey to turn around the life of his own autistic son, and Gilles Pelenc, father of 2 autistic boys, who joined as co-founder and as a Trustee.
