Strategy for adults with autism

3rd March 2010

The Department of Health has published the first autism strategy for England, saying that it will kick-start fundamental change in public services helping adults with autism to live independent lives and find work.

The strategy sets a clear framework for all mainstream services across the public sector to work together for the 400,000 adults with autism in England with around half of them have a learning disability. Actions in the autism strategy include a new National Autism Programme Board to lead change in public services set out in the strategy.
