Welcome to Autism Hampshire

Autism Hampshire is the new name for Hampshire Autistic Society.

Autism Hampshire would like to offer you a warm welcome to its website. As the leading autism focused organisation in the region, Autism Hampshire is constantly looking at ways to both influence and develop services that reflect the needs and wishes of people with autism and those connected to them.

Since its first beginnings in the mid 1960’s, the charity has been working to understand the impact of autism on individuals' lives, and how it can shape services to take account of their needs.

Widgit Easy Read Custody Sheet  

It is estimated that 20-30% of all offenders in the UK have learning difficulties or disabilities that interfere with their ability to cope within the criminal justice system. 
 
In order to meet the specific needs of detainees. Widgit, Autism Hampshire and Hampshire Police Constabulary worked together to develop a series of “easy read” symbol sheets for use in custody.
 
Independent research by the University of Southampton found that the response to the use of Widgit symbol sheets in police custody was positive.
