"Alphabet 12 is a place where people can find empowering information, practical tools, friendships, support. In an increasingly isolated world, it's even more challenging when you're a little different from typical, and that can mean being being alone. Alphabet 12 get people involved, active and alive. It's a terrific group of vibrant people from all walks of life sharing the common thread of the challenge and opportunity of having a neuro-difference."
“It's a pleasure to talk to a group of people who are so interested in what is being done in the wider community to support an understanding of autism.”
