The Autism Self-Assessment is intended to review progress, around the country, in implementing the Government’s Autism strategy ‘Think Autism’.
Organisations asked to review progress on the principal areas covered by the strategy:
- local authorities as local leaders
- relating health commissioners
- other statutory partners (notably in the employment and criminal justice areas)
- local autistic residents and family carers
The exercise comprises just over a hundred questions in a variety of formats. Many involve measuring local performance in relation to specified green, amber and red benchmarks. This report looks at the patterns of responses around the country. It compares them to responses to the same questions posed 2, and in some cases 4, years ago. This was the fifth self-assessment exercise.
