The review is an opportunity for Ministers across Government to assess whether the objectives of the autism strategy remain fundamentally the right ones, to take a comprehensive look at how far they are being achieved, and to consider what should happen to continue to make progress.

The Autism Programme Board, which brings together representatives from across government, the public and voluntary sectors and people with autism and family carers, agreed the overall approach to the review at its meeting on 24 April. We are starting the investigative stage of the review and this will last until the end of October. We will then revise the strategy as necessary by March 2014. Key partners such as the National Autistic Society, Autism Alliance UK and the Hidden Impairment National Group will be assisting in this process and they are currently finalising their plans.
