SAAS Attend Westmister Autism Conference

The aims of the conference are to explore why the outcomes are so poor for adults with autism in the UK and to identify appropriate solutions to this problem. The conference will take place following the release of The National Audit Office (NAO) report which was commissioned to explore the problems and challenges of supporting adults with autism. The aim of that report was to assess current service provision in areas including: health, social care, education, benefits and employment support. It identified how these areas could be made more effective, efficient and appropriate to the needs of adults with autism and their carers. The specific aims of this conference are to: * Provide an introduction to the issues from David Cameron * Update delegates on progress on the Autism Bill * Promote and explain the findings of the National Audit Office report into autism * Provide a personal view of autism from the perspective of an adult on the spectrum * State what is currently known about the numbers and needs of adults with autism in the UK * Compare the position of adults with autism with the position of adults with learning disabilities within the UK * Highlight the importance of identifying more accurately the number and needs of adults with autism spectrum disorders in the UK * Identify action points that delegates and others can undertake
