In April 2014 the government published ‘Think Autism’, a strategy for meeting the needs of autistic adults in England. The strategy supports the Autism Act 2009. This year the Department of Health and Social Care, working with the Department for Education, will review the strategy and extend it to cover children as well as adults.
To help them do this, they want to hear about people’s experiences of care and support.
This call for evidence will be of particular interest to:
- autistic people – adults, children and young people
- their families
- their carers
- organisations and professionals that provide care and support to autistic people or work with autistic people
