Motion text

That this House agrees that all adults with autism should be supported to achieve their potential, including those with Asperger's syndrome; recognises that too many adults with autism are isolated and ignored, struggle to access support and are heavily dependent on their families; congratulates The National Autistic Society for highlighting these issues in its campaign, Think Differently About Autism - I Exist; believes that recording the number of adults with autism nationally and locally would help to improve the planning and delivery of services; further believes that the barriers that prevent adults with autism from accessing services can be overcome; further believes that social support and person-centred services for adults with autism are required; and calls on the Government to develop its expertise in autism and work with local authorities and primary care trusts to put in place the changes that will transform the lives of adults with autism.
