Axcis has been in partnership with The National Autistic Society (NAS)  since 2011. We are the exclusive sponsor of Network Autism, the NAS’s vital online service created to bring autism professionals together across over 12 professional sectors and from 90 countries.  Network Autism’s goal is to ensure that all professionals working in the field of autism enhance and develop their skills and work towards raising standards. This network has proven a huge success, affecting change and creating essential support for children with autism in schools and specialist services.
 
For a third year in succession, Axcis is headline sponsor of the NAS Professional Conference  and the Autism Professional Awards  .  We also sponsor the NAS’s Ask-An-Expert which you can take part in via Network Autism.  You can get a chance to take part in an online conversation with education autism specialists.
 
Axcis was also title sponsor in 2011 and 2012 of Autism in Education, a free conference which enabled hundreds of teachers to hear experts share best practice and the latest ideas in educational provision for children with autism.  

Additionally, Axcis has solely funded a series of free webinars for teachers and teaching assistants to learn more about how to support children with autism in the classroom.  These have been recorded and are available to watch on the NAS website
 
Axcis understands the importance of placing appropriately qualified, trained professionals in schools, and the effect that has on outcomes for a young person’s learning and development, including children with autism. Jean Wilson, Managing Director of Axcis: “We are proud to be a corporate sponsor of the NAS. As we enter the fifth year of our partnership, it is evident to see how our relationship has both enhanced our business while allowing us to make a difference to the lives of those living with autism, and their families. We hope our partnership will continue for many years.”
 
Mark Lever, Chief Executive of the National Autistic Society said: “Autism is a serious, lifelong and disabling condition - a lot more common that most people think. Parents and young people agree that knowledge of autism, more than anything, helps children's needs to be met in school and many teachers also tell us that they would like more training in autism. We hope that the activities we undertake in association with Axcis will empower teachers and professionals to ensure that children with autism are supported in the best way possible - helping them to lead fulfilling and rewarding lives.”
