This guide is intended to provide a framework for the development of these strategic plans around Scotland. It provides information, drawn from a wide range of professionals, individuals and families of people on the spectrum, regarding the challenges faced by people with ASD across the lifespan and ability range and how these might be best addressed. This is a flexible approach which allows for the guidelines to be used both generally, across services and locations, but also, more specifically, as required by individuals. (See worked examples Appendices 1-3 to illustrate how it might be used) It is not however, a comprehensive list of all possible interventions and supports nor can it provide information regarding the efficacy of specific interventions.
