The Curly Hair Project (CHP) is an award-winning social enterprise founded by autistic author and entrepreneur Alis Rowe.

Their resources are used by individuals, families and professionals all over the world.

Things that make their work different: 

  • It is based on real life, personal experiences
  • They teach people how to really apply the theory we teach about autism
  • They have a very ‘inclusive’ approach – supporting all people in developing communication and relationships
  • They don’t expect the rest of the world to change to fit in with the autistic person – they want everyone to adapt and work together!
  • They aim to help autistic people learn to understand themselves and their needs and ultimately be able to self-manage
  • Their work is all about acceptance, understanding and empathy for different world experiences
  • They can offer differentiated learning because Alis is on the autistic spectrum herself

For more information, see The Curly Hair Project Website or the Curly Hair Project Facebook Page

View full details of Personal Budget


A Personal Budget is one part of a personalised way of supporting children and young people with special educational needs or disability (SEND). A Personal Budget should not be seen in isolation but as an integral part of the agreed individual plan, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for children and young people.

A Personal Budget is an amount of money identified by the Local authority to deliver provision set out in an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP).  It is not all of the money that is spent on a child or young person, but is the element that a parent or carer can have control of. It is the funding that must be used to meet the needs, outcomes and provision outlined in the EHCP.

For more information, please see the Coventry Personal Budget Statement 

The video above was made by KIDS Charity, a charity that supports disabled children and young people and their families.
