Autism Act briefing

02 September 2011

This Law Centre briefing discusses the introduction of the Autism Act (Northern Ireland) 2011 ('the 2011 Act') which was passed on 9 May 2011. It came into operation on 9 August 2011.

The 2011 Act is an equality and rights based piece of legislation. It aims to ensure that people with autism are afforded the same entitlements and opportunities as those with other disabilities.

It also requires the Northern Ireland government departments to work together to achieve a more streamlined approach to the provision of services for people with autism and their carers.
