Ambitious About Autism

Ambitious About Autism

Ambitious about Autism is the national charity for children and young people with autism. We provide services, raise awareness and understanding, and campaign for change. Through TreeHouse School and Ambitious College we offer specialist education and support. Our ambition is to make the ordinary possible for more children and young people with autism.

We are the national charity for children and young people with autism. We provide services, raise awareness and understanding, and campaign for change. Our vision is to make the ordinary possible for children and young people with autism and our mission is to help them to learn, thrive and achieve. Through TreeHouse School and Ambitious College we offer specialist education and support.

Ambitious about Autism was founded as TreeHouse in 1997. It was founded as a specialist school for children with autism, with five pupils and based in a borrowed room in the Royal Free Hospital in North London. Since then, Ambitious about Autism has been growing and developing into the national charity that it is today, which provides services, raises awareness and influences policy. We moved to Muswell Hill, north London, in 2004, and moved into our purpose designed building – the Pears National Centre for Autism Education – in October 2008.

Ambitious about Autism is now looking to the future, and our new ambitions for children and young people with autism and their families.
