Developing the National Autism Strategy – Consultation reports

From 4 September to mid-November 2023, more than 2000 people shared their thoughts and ideas on what should be included in the National Autism Strategy. We heard from:

  • Autistic people and their families
  • carers
  • advocates
  • researchers
  • other stakeholders.

There were community forums and workshops, focus groups, interviews, a submission process and online questionnaire, and an online ideas wall.

The reports below explain what people said to help shape our draft National Autism Strategy.
