Majority of local authorities failing adults with autism

eGov monitor - A Policy Dialogue Platform | Promoting Better Governance

From a UK study:

1. 148 out of 149 local authorities do not know how many adults with autism are in their area. However, 27% are planning to address this issue.

2. 64% do not have a named team or individual with responsibility for autism in line with Department of Health recommendations. Just over a third of local authorities are following Government guidance in this area, although a further 11% have acknowledged the need for further action.

That's appalling, and I would love to know if Canada is any better.
