Note about terminology

Throughout this report, the term 'autism' will be used to refer to autistic spectrum disorders ( ASD) or autistic spectrum conditions ( ASC), including Asperger Syndrome. The terms 'autism' and 'learning disability' both cover a broad range of conditions.

The word 'participants' is used to refer to all those individuals who took part in the scoping study - as survey respondents, interviewees or workshop attendees.
