About the authors
This guide was authored by autistic consultant and Brain in Hand co-production lead Connor Ward and Brain in Hand communications manager Chris Richards (who has been on the waiting list for an autism assessment for nearly three years at the time of writing) with input from the wider autistic community.
Our work on this important project was funded by a grant awarded to Brain in Hand CEO Dr Louise Morpeth by the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA).
