Tell us how we can improve autism services in Kingston

Help Kingston Council to develop a new vision and strategy for children, young people and adults who are on the autistic spectrum. We want to hear views from:

  • young people and adults on the autistic spectrum and their parents, families or carers

  • organisations providing services to people on the autistic spectrum

  • all other services, such as businesses, leisure services and schools, that could help to further develop Kingston into an autism friendly borough and community.


Share your views or ask a question using the tools below. You can also sign up for one of our autism workshops in November.

We'd love to hear your stories and experiences around autism in Kingston. You could write a story about what life could be like in the future if certain things were to be in place. Tell us your experience of either being on the autistic spectrum, living with someone who is on the autistic spectrum or working with someone with autism. And please do tell us if you've had a negative experience with services and what we could learn from that.

Ground rules: 

  • Please do not use names of individuals who are on the autistic spectrum nor names of staff.

  • Please be aware that actual complaints should be submitted directly to services

Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a story to us. This will really help us to develop our strategy.

    Recent Educational Psychologist report said he is age between 5 and 9 and that his IQ is below 70. However, D. is clever in many different ways. He can operate machines, see and feel things that the rest of us can’t. It makes me think that there must be more kinds of metrics to measure intelligence.
