Welcome to The Autism File Global

I’m Polly Tommey, Editor in Chief of The Autism File Global but most importantly the mother of a teenager with autism. I would like to welcome you to the only autism spectrum resource world wide available in print, on-line, in audio and now video.

12 years ago I launched The Autism File Magazine as a means for parents, like myself, of a newly diagnosed child with autism to get information and help.

Now standing by my side here at AFG are the very best experts, authors and advisory committees from around the world producing an unparalleled resource of information to help you and an international community of 1,000’s of mothers, fathers, relatives and professionals living and working with someone with an autism spectrum condition.

Join us now to be part of a team where we aim to support, educate and most importantly work towards a better life for those with autism.
