Find out about the outcome of our research projects looking at care pathways for autism and autism with co-occurring epilepsy, including data from the UK, Spain and Italy. We explore treatment gaps/unmet needs, screening and diagnosis times, funding and make recommendations for future care.

The AIMS-2-TRIALS Autism Representatives (A-Reps) and autism charity representatives are co-authors on the paper and have also been involved in preparing other dissemination materials such as posters and booklets. The full booklet ‘Early detection and continuity of care: A joint Value of Treatment study on anorexia nervosa, autism and depression in Europe’ is available on the Brain Council website.
