Strategy for Autism

Strategy for Autism

The National Autism Strategy has provided the context for the development of our local Autism Strategy and implementation plan. It covers the needs of children and adults with an autism spectrum disorder and their families and carers, by focusing on increasing opportunities and achieving better outcomes across the lifespan.

The strategy is a 10 year plan; it takes into consideration the recommendations made by the National Autism Strategy, the 10 indicators for current best autism practice and the outcomes of the Clackmannanshire and Stirling Council mapping project.

It draws upon the multi-disciplinary expertise of service users, families, carers and a range of professionals from both statutory services and third sector organisations.

There are 6 local goals :

  • Assessment and Diagnosis
  • Life Opportunities
  • Families and Carers
  • Information and Awareness
  • Transition and Employment and Opportunities

From these 6 local goals, 16 key objectives have been identified.

Implementing our Autism Strategy

The work on the Autism Strategy will be coordinated by the newly formed Autism Strategy Implementation Steering Group, which is responsible for the multi-agency delivery, implementation and monitoring of the strategy. This group will report to the Community Planning Partnership, as well as to Directors and Chief Officers of the agencies and services involved.
