Autism is a condition which affects how an individual communicates with and relates to other people and the world around them.  It is increasingly recognised in children and adults.  In Scottish schools, 1 child in 67 has an Autism diagnosis making the condition more common than juvenile diabetes and childhood cancers combined.

A lack of awareness and understanding of Autism can lead to a range of problems, from isolation and discrimination to poor service provision.

Strategy for Autism

We have developed a local Autism strategy in partnership with Service Users, Carers, Clackmannanshire Council, NHS Forth Valley and the Third Sector.

Autism Forth Valley

We have developed a website, Autism Forth Valley, for people with autism, their parents and carers and autism professionals.
