Review of Autism Strategy to Cover Children and Young People

The review is looking at;

  • joining up health, care and education services to address autistic children’s needs holistically
  • developing diagnostic services to diagnose autism earlier, in line with clinical guidance
  • improving the transition between children and adult services so that no young people miss out, and ending inappropriate reliance on inpatient hospital care
  • improving understanding of autism and all its profiles, including recently identified forms such as pathological demand avoidance (PDA)
