Autism and Neurodiversity Toolkit for government departments, produced by Department for Work and Pensions, in partnership with the Autism Alliance UK and the Autism Task Group
It is for staff from all government departments and helps them better understand how they can support autistic people and associated Neuro-Diverse conditions
They have also developed a Disability Passport, ‘About Me’, that aims to support disabled claimants to safely disclose their disability or health condition to their Jobcentre Plus Work-Coach / Adviser with the aim of improving communication and ensuring appropriate, reasonable adjustments are identified and put in place at the earliest opportunity
They produced a range of content, including the Autistic Spectrum Disorders toolkit, a ‘one stop shop guide for primary care professionals, ICBs, people affected by autism, as well as interested members of the general public’
The page also includes autism awareness presentations for use by GPs and practice staff in their own surgeries and links to a range of policy and guidance.
The RCGP also have an online course to help GPs improve support for people on the autism spectrum.
