On 2 October 2013, we hosted a further event, Implementing the Autism Strategy. We invited a number of local authorities to talk about the processes employed in designing their local autism plans. In keeping with key messages of co-production highlighted in our previous event, we invited a member of the Glasgow City Council Autism Working Group to talk about meaningful consultation.

Workshops considered the Ten Indicators of Good Practice as a framework for evaluation and identifying meaningful outcomes. The day offered the opportunity for peer review, knowledge exchange and a solution-focussed approach to the creation of local plans.

 

Presentations delivered on the day included:

Sylvia Campbell; Autism Strategy Project Manager, presenting on the Orkney Autism Report and Action Plan.
