Autus - The Hao2 Foundation

Autus is a small charity creating exciting opportunities for growth, learning and work for young people with Autistic Spectrum Conditions.

Using our innovative and engaging virtual environment we offer a range of programmes and activities to help build confidence and develop social communication, digital and employability skills.

We are a disabled people's user-led organisation set up to enable disabled people to purchase employability training and job coaching courses through a supportive route and benefit from a 20% VAT exemption, thereby making personal budgets go further.

We can tailor courses to suit participants in a variety of ways. Course content can be specialised to suit individual skills or interests e.g. coding, graphic design, writing etc. Session times are flexible to fit round participants' lives and suit individual variations in learning speed. Because courses take place online, the physical location where the individual participates can be adapted to suit his/her needs. The course can also be tailored to take individual social confidence levels into account, with the ability to communicate via text rather than voice (but the option of building up to voice later on) and the option of working on a one-to-one basis at first and then building up to group sessions. We focus on quality of provision, not quantity of learners or qualifications.



Our courses are predominantly accessed from a home connection and participants need to have access to a multimedia PC and basic IT skills including elementary knowledge of how to use email, the internet and instant messaging chat. If these are barriers to access, we can work with individuals to identify local community centres that can help them overcome these barriers to participation by creating local digital access points.
