Barriers to Autism and SDS

We are about to start some work on Autism and overcoming barriers to accessing SDS. Does anyone have any experience they’d like to share; positive or negative?

I was lucky enough to be on the SDS pilot in Aberdeenshire. My experience was good in that I was successful but that was probably down to having help from someone who knows the system. Potential barriers for me would be not be allowed to have a trusted someone attending meetings with me and usual lack of awareness of everyone with autism being different, having different challenges. Hope this helps …


My son and I are autistic. I could write a bit about it but I don’t have time right now and may forget.
