To ask the Scottish Government what plans it has to update the Scottish Strategy for Autism.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 17 April 2018
The Scottish Government remains committed to improving the lives of autistic people in Scotland. In partnership with COSLA we have published the updated priorities for the next phase of the Scottish Strategy for Autism.
This publication can be accessed at http://www.gov.scot/Publications/2018/03/1405 . These new priorities were developed following an engagement exercise with autistic people, their families and carers and professionals in the field. More than 1,200 participated in this exercise through either or online questionnaire or one of our four engagement events.
