Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects at least 1% of the population.
There is an urgent need to improve healthcare of people with autism. Research shows that autistic people die on average 16 years earlier than the general population and this increases if they also have learning disabilities.
This Autism Toolkit aims to be a ‘one stop shop’, a user-friendly guide to autism for primary care professionals, people affected by autism, clinical commissioning groups, as well as interested members of the general public.
While published by the RCGP – it has relevant and useful information for dentists. You can access the resource here.
