Autism Resources

We are offering some supported projects for young people with Autism in partnership with venues that the show is playing at on tour.
If you are a school or group who would like to find out more about these, please contact learning@nationaltheatre.org.uk

Ambitious about Autism is the national charity for children and young people with autism. The charity provides services, raises awareness and understanding, and campaigns to make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism. We were delighted to welcome members of the cast and production team to meet Cian, one of our Youth Patrons, at Ambitious About Autism and see the specialist work we do at Tree House School.

Talk about Autism is the free online community and discussion forum we provide for everyone interested in autism, including parents, carers, family members, people on the spectrum, and professionals. To find out more, please visit talkaboutautism.org.uk

Audience Comments

“The story was especially significant to me, as I went with my son who is 15 next week and also has Aspergers we both loved it and were able to identify with aspects of the story and found the theatrical adaptation (of a brilliant story by Mark Haddon) visually engaging, physically explosive in its portrayal of especially Christopher and cleverly sequenced with funny, sometimes poignant and highly entertaining characters! In short we loved it”
Rachel Hart (saw the show in Cardiff, April 2015)
