The National Autistic Society has been working as part of a project steering group in helping develop a Core Capabilities Framework – the purpose of which is to set out the essential knowledge and skills for all staff involved in supporting autistic children, young people and adults.
The steering group has also involved the National Autistic Taskforce, Opening Minds Training and Consultancy, Skills for Care, Skills for Health, alongside a range of representatives from the autistic, parent/carer, research and professional communities.
The first stage of the framework development included research, consultation with the project steering group and a range of co-production workshops open to autistic adults, family members, workers, children and young people. The feedback from these co-production workshops has inputted directly into the draft framework.
A draft of this Core Capabilities Framework for Supporting Autistic People is now available – and we are looking for as many people as possible to review the draft framework and provide any comments and feedback by completing an online survey.
Further details and a link to the survey are available here: www.skillsforhealth.org.uk/autism-framework
Please submit your completed survey as soon as possible and by Monday 1st July 2019 at the latest.
