Commissioners in Oxfordshire are currently consulting on the Oxfordshire Autism Joint Commissioning Strategy.
Autism is a lifelong developmental disability. People with autism experience difficulty with social communication, social interaction and social imagination. This strategy has been developed with the help of members of the Oxfordshire Autism Partnership Board, (members include people with autism, carers, commissioners, providers and partners), who have discussed unmet needs and desirable service improvements. The strategy addresses these issues and builds on some improvements which have been made in services and support for people with autism in Oxfordshire in recent years.
