The presentation charts our understanding of autism over the past 50 years, and gives insight into what people with autism and their families experience and need today and in the future. It examines diagnosis, focusing on more complex presentations of women and girls, adults and adolescents, and associated mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety. It looks at best practice in autism services and how clinicians and practitioners can inform policy to improve services for all autistic people and their families.
