As an autism professional, working with Buckinghamshire service users, we would like to know your views.  This will help shape future services and facilities. Thames Valley Police and the Department for Work and Pensions, to name but two local organisations, have benefited from dedicated Autism training and are aware that people with autism have their own, individual profiles and needs.

Autism awareness is growing daily, let Autism Bucks grow too!
