Who we are

The little black duck is an autism specific service that focuses on improving the wellbeing of people in the autistic community.

We are lead by autistic centred research, the voices of the autistic community and our clients.

We follow a neurodiversity paradigm and recognise the autistic neurotype as a minority neurotype that sometimes needs support to navigate an environment not conducive to their neurology and nervous system.

We focus on supporting the autistic individual’s journey of self discovery as they uncover the inherent strengths of their neurotype and grow into their awesome autistic self.
