The Axcis/NAS partnership
Axcis has been in partnership with the NAS since 2011, and we are proud to be their single biggest corporate sponsor. Since the start of this relationship, we have worked together on a range of initiatives, from developing FREE online webinars about autism, to live Twitter chats with top autism researchers and professionals as well as many training events, seminars and conferences. Axcis also sponsors Network Autism, the NAS’s vital online service created to bring autism professionals together across over 12 professional sectors and from 90 countries. In 2015, NAS also launched their MyWorld campaign with the support of Axcis Education to enhance autism awareness, training and resources in schools. Axcis have become a regular fixture at the NAS Professional Conference, which we are thrilled to support and sponsor. Axcis also sponsor an “Autism Professionals Award” to recognise the fantastic work being done to support those on the spectrum. We are extremely proud of this partnership with the NAS and hope that it will continue for many years to come.
