Thinking Autism Membership Benefits – become a member
Thinking Autism is a membership society, run by parents and family members of children with autism. Although non-members can access to most of the services and support we provide, our members receive many additional benefits, including free book of choice and information-packed ‘members welcome-pack’; free access to a large lending library; reduced conference fees; and special discount offers from trusted businesses, including suppliers of special-diet foods and supplements. Membership fee is only £25 for the first year and £15 per year thereafter.
Members also bring benefit to our charity by contributing their feedback about our work, as well as organising and running local parent-to-parent support groups as well as campaigns that help change the political and social landscape that affect our loved ones with autism. Many of our members also contribute to the work of our charity, by volunteering in various roles.
Our members include parents, carers and family members of people with ASD; carers, dieticians, nurses, teachers, speech and language therapists and other professionals; and adults with autism who use various treatments, including biomedical approaches, to improve their functioning, quality of life and learning.
Our membership is growing fast – our UK-wide membership has doubled in the past two years and we are now over 1000 voices strong. Only by standing together can we help our loved ones with autism to have the best lives possible.
If you or your child is affected by autism and if you are interested in dietary, nutritional or any other autism interventions our Membership Pack is for you.
Being a member entitles you to discounts on foods and supplements including 33% off supplements at Cytoplan; 6-20% off foods the Finchley Clinic, and many more. Other Membership goodies include a free book (choose from Team TMR – Evolution of a Revolution: From Hope to Healing, Nutritional Supplement Use for Autism Spectrum Disorder by Jon Pangborn).
Our members also enjoy free entry to our Roadshows (information days for parents across England), large discounts on Thinking Autism conference registration fees, free access to our Autism Library (filled with many informative books and DVDs on autism, including many latest titles).
By becoming a member you also gain access to ‘Face2Face’ – a series of Facebook online presentations by leading autism specialists created specially for Thinking Autism, as well as the chance to meet like-minded parents through our local support groups network and members’ only Facebook Group.
Please contact us if you are interested in joining.
“We’ve benefitted greatly from the discounts on supplements, so thank you for that. …Hearing conference speakers and meeting other parents who believe they can help their kids, instead of just “accepting” has been so empowering!
I’ve used some of your Co-morbidities literature with NHS professionals. Our new doctor has has been very supportive. The Facebook site has been great. Getting links to the articles you post is really superb. It’s fabulous to read about all the research findings from around the world, and keeps me going on this path.”
