What if we simplified autism?

Explaining autism in clear terms that everyone can understand isn’t complicated. Autisme 1-2-3 aims to provide simplified information, with the possibility of going further if desired. Info about everything, for everyone.

3 levels of support

There are three levels of support needed by autistic people. The resources here are for everyone, no matter where they are on the spectrum.

3 audiences

Autistic? Close to an autistic person? Just curious? This is the place to find information.

After 3, it's...

Go! Because we're moving forward. We learn, we look for tips and anything else we can think of to help every human being reach their full potential.

The mission

Autisme 123 was born out of a desire to make information as accessible as possible, even for people with learning or comprehension challenges. That’s why each page begins with a short, simplified text to introduce the concept. Then, if people can and wish to find out more, they can consult the rest of the page.

Autisme 123 needs your help!

Volunteer initiative

Much of the work is done on a voluntary basis. The costs of hosting, maintaining the site, consulting with professionals and writing certain sections are borne by an autistic person, with the sole aim of helping the cause.


If you’re a professional who can offer content, if you’re looking for a platform to disseminate information related to autism, contact Autisme 123. Psychologists, psychiatrists, occupational therapists, social workers, psychoeducators, caregivers, special educators… Please come forward!

Any mistakes?

If you notice a typo, an error, incomplete information or simply wish to add a nuance or clarification, please send us your comments.

We'll let you have your say!

This site is designed to give a voice to autistic people and their allies. If you’d like to share an opinion piece, tell us about a project you’re working on, express your views on rights and inclusion, or simply let us know about a great initiative, our blog section would welcome your texts.

These should be written in a respectful way that encourages communication between autistic and non-autistic people. They should also be written in such a way that as many people as possible can understand them. Don’t hesitate to ask your network for help if you lack the tools to do this.
