What is Autsera?
Autsera develops games to help autistic children gain vital skills for social integration, better learning, and future employment. With budget cuts and increasing demands, almost 300,000 children in the UK can benefit from our extra support.
We are residents at Google for Startups UK and are very grateful for their mentoring and support. We are part of TechHub Accelerate programme and Plexal Social Inclusion Unit OpenDoor Programme. We were part of the 1st cohort of WeinSocialTech, the Deutsche Bank funded support programme.
In Late November, we presented a demo of our first version of the game in front of a group of 60 Google engineers, and won the audience vote.
With your help, and match funding from NatWest, we can develop the game faster. Please pledge to our campaign and share with 5 people.
Why is it Important?
What we do is becoming very important in light of the gap in funding our local councils and schools are facing.
According to government and leading charities statistics:
70% of autistic children parents say “support is not enough”
75% of children with special needs are without an Education Support Plan
Since 2015, special needs requests increased by 35% while funding increased 11%.
Parents and carers of autistic children are always searching for interventions and strategies that would benefit their children, improve their skills and help them realise their potential. We believe that our games can help close to 300,000 children in the UK integrate socially, learn better, and have higher chance of future employment.
How Will We Spend the Funding?
As we speak, we're already working hard building and testing to make effective social skills development games. With your support, we will be able to grow our team of developers and bring these games to autistic children even sooner. We are counting on your support!

Who Are We?
Autsera is really personal for us!
As parents of two lovely children, one of them on the autism spectrum disorder, we know first-hand the struggles and stresses parents like us go through. We also know how important early intervention is, and we have a living testament to its value and the difference it can make to the child, the family, and the wider community.
We made it our goal to break down the barriers for parents and carers to get the support they need and help their autistic children develop their social skills.
