Autism Spectrum Condition (ASC) is a lifelong developmental condition which affects how people communicate and interact with others. It is a spectrum type condition, and therefore, affects all individuals in different ways. Some individuals will require 24-hour care while others require minimal support.

Further information and information about the National Strategy for Autistic Children, Young People and Adults: 2021-2026, is available via the following links:

There are a range of services available to support assessment, diagnosis, and care for people with ASC. These services are listed in the table below.
