Quite shocking that all those lawyers are unaware of the autism toolkits for legal advocates.  What are they playing at.  Judges too.  It's laziness not to find out what is available and then claim ignorance.

The Equal Treatment Bench Book has lots of information on the rights to adjustments autistics have in court and this is all types of court, including family court: https://www.judiciary.gov.uk/publications/equal-treatment-bench-book/

Also the Advocates Gatewayhttp://www.theadvocatesgateway.org/toolkits has specific guides for ground rulescase managementquestioning witnesses and now, also has a guide on the family courts.  There are other relevant guides on the Advocates Gateway link.
