Obtaining the FULL information on the numbers of ASD young people and adults with diagnosis or suspected of having a ASD within the Youth Offending, Prisons and Psychiatric hospitals (inc. Persons transfered under license to secure autism residential homes) - this would need to include offences and background information eg. Looked after, what type of support provided & who provided it, mainstream / ASD school, age of diagnosis, previous police involvement etc
Official response from planned
Thank you for your suggestion. We are aiming to publish a set of resources for those who are autistic and going through the criminal justice system in which we hope our current service users will have great input on. We are aware of the current struggles in which many face, especially those with an active diagnosis of ASD.
We hope to have more news to share in the Summer and hope you will work with us on this very important matter.
