What is the Autism Education Trust (AET)?

The Autism Education Trust (AET) is a partnership between Ambitious about Autism, Autism Alliance and the National Autistic Society (NAS). It is funded and supported by the Department of Education (DfE) and hosted on behalf of the partnership by the NAS.

The purpose of the AET is to improve the education of children and young people with autism. To achieve this, the AET:

  • develops and delivers training and a range of materials for early years, school and post 16 educational settings
  • develops and disseminates information on educational practice
  • actively engages with young people, parents/carers and practitioners to inform its work
  • undertakes research into effective practice
