Children's Autism Strategy

Our vision is that Cornwall is a county committed to supporting children and young people with autistic spectrum conditions (ASC) to achieve positive outcomes. Children, young people and their families will be able to access services which meet their needs.

Families will feel supported through the diagnostic pathway and will receive advice and signposting about the services which are available to them. Families will have confidence that educational settings in Cornwall have a good understanding of autism and can meet their children’s needs. There will be good links with the Cornwall Autism Partnership for adults regarding issues such as transition to adult services, apprenticeship and adult education.

Parents and carers of children and young people with autism will be able to access information and training and all staff working within Cornwall Council (and their partner agencies) who work with children will be able to demonstrate a good understanding about autism and the support that they can provide to young people on the autism spectrum and their families.

We are currently seeking the views of children and young people with autism, parents / carers, and professionals through a public questionnaire of the Autism Strategy for Children and Young People in Cornwall. The Autism Strategy for Children and Young People in Cornwall is composed of aims and objectives centred around four key areas; education, health, early help and social care, and leisure and physical activity.
