Empire Charity provides expertise in the use of Assistive Technology (AT) and Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) to people of all ages with communication and physical disabilities to help with their communication, learning and daily living. And we also help to increase awareness of autism to the notice of all, together with well established and newly developed approaches in the diagnosis, assessment, education and treatment. The main goal is to improve the quality of life for persons with Autism, giving them a chance to take their rightful place within their local community where they can live, work and play. We support more than 500 children and their families in Amsterdam, Antwerp, and Five African Counties. Most of our funding comes from public donations.
