Autism review launched

The government has launched an autism review to address how to support employees with autism.

According to the Department for Work and Pensions, fewer than three in 10 autistic adults in the UK are in employment.

The review, led by Sir Robert Buckland, will look at working practices and initiatives to reduce stigma and improve the productivity of autistic employees. And it will consider more generally how employers can benefit from having a neurodiverse workforce.
