GAP is dedicated solely to promoting good practice in supporting children and adults with autism and Asperger’s syndrome and is published twice a year by BILD. This special Scottish edition aims to showcase the research, projects and initiatives which have developed as a result of the Scottish Strategy for Autism and other examples of good practice across Scotland. The co-editors for this special issue are Professor Tommy MacKay and Dr Glenys Jones.
