Adults with autism not diagnosed

15th October 2009

The Commons’ Public Accounts Committee has said that adults with autism in England are often not being diagnosed or supported properly.

It found that a lack of understanding about the condition among GPs and social care staff was a key problem and the committee also attacked the arrangements in place to oversee the transition from child to adult services which led to people being "cast adrift", however, the government said that a new strategy for autism would be published next year.
