We’re asking for feedback on the new borough-wide Reading All-Age Autism Strategy to ensure all partners and organisations are doing everything they can to help autistic people in Reading.
A public consultation has now been launched to gather feedback ahead of finalising identified priorities which autistic people in Reading have said they want addressed over the next four year period.
The seven key priority areas identified in the Reading All-Age Autism Strategy are:
Reading’s All-Age Autism Needs Assessment informed the 2022-26 strategy, designed by autistic residents, parent carers, carers, professionals working with autistic children and adults, local partners and statutory services.
The 60 day consultation began on 20 July and runs until 18 September.
There will be a public event, focus groups, an Easy Read version of the strategy and additional support available on request where needed to complete the consultation.
Reading Borough Council in partnership with key local stakeholders, including Voluntary Sector Organisations, Education, the NHS and Criminal Justice System, are leading on the development of a Reading All-Age Autism Strategy.
