The aim of this work is to evaluate the refreshed action plan and accompanying delivery plan, with specific focus on the implementation and impact of the Integrated Autism Service (IAS).

The evaluation also captured the experiences of individuals, families and professionals in accessing the IAS and their views on the impact of the services delivered.

The evaluation finds that the IAS is largely delivering what was intended. Although it took time to become operational, the experiences of people accessing the IAS has generally improved as services have developed. At this stage, the evaluation reports that prospects for the future are encouraging, provided services can cope with demand, retain staff and secure funding for the service beyond 2021.
