Other general comments that have not yet been included:

  • Let’s give it a snappy title East Cheshire Integrates Autism Service (ECIAS)
  • Include something about Safeguarding procedures in Standards
  • I think we need to discuss this age range to reconcile NICE guidance and LA requirements
  • The spec should be 0-25 years
  • What about social care – not sure we have considered a SW in the pathway
  • We need co-training with parents
  • Important to mention training workforces and Cheshire East as a community as suggested in the strategy
  • Reference to care planning (not only social care) but about anyone in a position to provide care (support) to family/person.
  • Really good, especially when looked at with the pre and post pathways and looks like a functioning ‘system’
  • A consistent approach is needed throughout key transitions from early years to primary, secondary and post 16 with flexibility around setting
  • Positive behaviour therapy should not be ABA
  • Include more on the co-production work with PCF and including the future work planned directly with young people
  • Should we specify that all parents receive Cygnet training post diagnosis?
  • Is there a TOMS type model that can be applied to autism?
  • Can we apply risk matrix type approach adopted by SALT
