New reports

SEN report

14 June 2012

The APPGA has now published our report, The right start: reforming the system for children with autism

Among the proposals, we are recommending that as part of the forthcoming reforms in the Children and Families Bill, the Government ensures:

  • every school has a lead teacher for autism
  • all children and young people with autism and special educational needs (SEN) have an action plan (including those without Statements or the proposed Education, Health and Care Plans)
  • tThere is meaningful support for all young people with autism and SEN up to 25 years, including those not in further education.

A PDF version of the report is available, as is an autism-friendly version. For a hard copy of the report, please email appga@nas.org.uk 

Transition report

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Autism has launched a new report following their Inquiry into Transition for young people with autism.

Transition into adulthood looks at the experiences of transition of young people, their families and carers and professionals. The report found that although there are pockets of good practice, transition services are still failing most young people, and it makes some clear recommendations to Government and local authorities to address these shortcomings.

You can download the full Transition into adulthood report, or an executive summary and an easy read version.

You can also download past reports of the APPGA.
