About LAS

The Leicestershire Autistic Society (formed over20 years ago) provides support, information and advice to families and professionals dealing with Autism in Leicestershire, Leicester City and Rutland.

We are a volunteer led organisation, where the vast majority of our volunteers being parents or carers of someone with ASD.

One of our main aims is to continually strive to raise general awareness of ASD.

We are also represented on City and County Autism specific forums where we campaign for further improvements in: diagnosis, the provision of relevant specialist education services, making Child/Adult service planning more ‘autism friendly’, accessible play and leisure services for Children and Adults with ASD, and the provision of better support for adults with ASD.
