Raising awareness, ensuring opportunity
Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with autism. There is no cure for this complex developmental disability that affects 1 in 150 people - but there is effective treatment. Since 2001 Bermuda Autism Support & Education (BASE) has been dedicated to providing autism-related information, referral, advocacy, training, and support to families, professionals, and community members. By increasing public awareness of autism, we help to ensure that individuals on the autism spectrum are given opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

Over the past 18 months BEN has been laying the groundwork for businesses to make a more meaningful contribution to education.
Phase 1 is capacity building and networking with parents to create a pool of resources.
Phase 2 is building relationships with principals at government schools. BEN does not provide financial donations or scholarships, what BEN can offer is a framework of services around three connected challenges:
• how to help schools connect with a range of high quality experiential learning activities;
• how to provide better, more tailored Career guidance to enable young people to make better choices about their learning and employment.
• how to help schools create systems for better and earlier intervention for young people;
