The Outer Hebrides Autism Strategy
The Outer Hebrides Autism Strategy 2014-2024 sets out the priorities and strategic direction for the improvement and development of services in the Western Isles for people with autism and their families across the lifespan.
The Outer Hebrides Action Plan
The Action Plan underpins the Outer Hebrides Autism Strategy and sets out six priority areas. The Action Plan is monitored by the Outer Hebrides Community Planning Partnership.
The 2013 mapping report
The National Mapping Project is designed to map out existing service provision across Scotland in order to build up a full picture of the national position which will help inform future local decisions on autism co-ordination on who will do what and where, and influence national decisions on the investment of Scottish Government funding for autism in the future.
The Service Map presented is a snapshot in 2013 of the situation in the Outer Hebrides area with regard to the delivery of services for people on the Autism Spectrum.
The Scottish Strategy for Autism
A number of initiatives have been developed over the past decade to address the needs of people with autism but it wasn’t until autumn 2010 that it was recognised as a national priority. Following a period of consultation, the Scottish Government and COSLA launched the Scottish Strategy for Autism in November 2011.

Download the Menu of Interventions
The menu of Interventions is a guide to interventions and supports for people on the autism spectrum, published by The Scottish Government in 2013, as part of The Scottish Strategy for Autism. It provides information regarding the challenges faced by people with autism, and suggests the types of services that might address these issues. It does not include a list of specific service providers.
Local Autism Resources around Scotland
Autism Network Scotland conducted a series of events around Scotland which captured the local resources available to address each of the fourteen challenges outlined in the Menu of Interventions.
