It’s really important to the wellbeing of a person with autism that they can communicate relevant personal information to professionals fully, clearly and succinctly. That’s why, for the past two years, the NAS has been working with adults with autism to develop a self-advocacy booklet for adults on the autism spectrum.
The new booklet has been designed as a practical resource for people on the spectrum to use at meetings. It aims to empower people to write down and organise information before meetings, so they can refer to it during meetings. It can be completed with or without help from someone else, and can develop over time into a full written record of the person’s needs, opinions and wishes.
