Welcome to the Irish Autism Action links library. Here you will find an extensive list of links to websites on autism, Asperger syndrome and related issues from around the world.
The resources on this website are provided for your help and information only. They are sites maintained by other groups, organisations and individuals and these links are provided in good faith. The presence of a link does not necessarily imply that IAA endorses or supports the originator(s), nor does the absence of a group simply that IAA does not support it.
IAA cannot be held responsible for any damage or loss caused by any inaccuracy or inconsistency in linked sites/pages, nor does it have any jurisdiction over the content of these resources or their accessibility.
All sites are checked for autism relevance and information content prior to publication here but given the nature of ease of updating on the web, we cannot be held responsible for the quality of the information provided.
If you have found anything in any of these sites which you believe to be offensive, please contact the Web Editor, quoting the URL of the website and of the page on the IAAI website from which it was linked, and the link to the site will be reviewed. Also if there are links that you have found useful and would like to be added to the Library please let us know.
You can find information on your local SENO here.
