In April 2014 the government published Think Autism, a strategy for meeting the needs of autistic adults in England. This year the Department of Health and Social Care, working with the Department for Education, will review the strategy and extend it to cover children as well as adults. The results of this consultation will be used to find out where people think progress has been made and where more needs to be done in the future.
The closing date for comments is 16 May 2019.

Waiting time standards for autism diagnosis
The House of Commons Library has published a debate pack on Waiting time standards for
autism diagnosis, which was sponsored by Bambos Charalambous MP. It provides background
information on waiting times for autism diagnoses in England, as well as Government policy on
autism in general, and diagnosis waiting times in particular.
