Dialogica is the first organisation in the world to apply Professional Dialogue socio-therapeutically and specifically to the field of autism. According to the New Economics Foundation, connecting with others is the most effective way of staying healthy (2020) and research shows that autistic people are four times more likely to be lonely than non-autistic people and are more likely to experience social anxiety (NAS). We are pleased to announce support from both NHS/CCG and the Royal Society of Arts in the form of a grant to support our ongoing work and in response to the Covid-19 global pandemic.
