The Parliamentary Commission on Autism, instigated by Barry Sheerman MP, had its inaugural meeting on December 1st 2015. The National Autism Project was represented by Professor Emily Simonoff, one of our Strategy Board members. The well-attended meeting provoked lively discussion which resulted in agreement on two areas of priority – access to healthcare and employment – both of which topics are very relevant to the goals of NAP. A further meeting will take place early in 2016
