The 2016 Autism Self-Assessment Framework has now been launched. For this exercise, the key documents are being published in a dedicated group on the local authority Knowledge Hub website.
The documents currently on the Knowledge Hub website are
1. the Framework questions
2. instructions for completing the exercise
3. the spreadsheet for collating and sending the responses to Public Health England (there are two versions of this, a version for users of current versions of Microsoft Excel and a separate version for use in areas still using pre-2007 Excel versions)
4. the letter from the director general for social care at the Department of Health and tbe president of the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services asking local authorities and their CCG colleagues to participate.
As the exercise progresses we will be posting progress updates and responses to any questions that may be raised as we have done in previous exercises. These will all be posted in the library on the Knowledge Hub site.
Details and results of the previous (2014) autism self-assessment exercise are still available on this site.
