Autism strategy

Back in 2009, we made history by driving a campaign to get the Government to recognise and support autistic people through an Autism Act in England, leading to an autism strategy.

This section explains Think Autism, the latest autism strategy launched in 2014, and the statutory guidance which supports the strategy.
