The Government will launch the first ever National Autism strategy for adults later this year. The strategy will set out the Government's plans to tackle the isolation, discrimination and inequality routinely experienced by many adults with autism. A prevalence study which will inform the Strategy has focused on the period of transition to adult life and will inform service planning for adults with Autistic Spectrum Disorders.
This conference will explore the themes of the Adult Autism Strategy and the initial response from consultation on the Strategy, managing the effective transaction to adult services, developing effective care pathways for people with autism, secure care and the development of person centered planning.
This timely and focused conference will offer the opportunity not only to listen to the distinguished panel of speakers but to join in an interactive panel discussion enabling delegates to interact with one another and with the speakers.
