The Shropshire Children’s Trust has commissioned a Children and Young People Autism Needs Assessment (for ages 0-25). As part of this needs assessment we are keen to understand from parents their experiences with regard to services and support for Autism Spectrum and behaviour disorders – whether diagnosed or not diagnosed. 

We have developed three questionnaires to help fill the gaps: 

  • one for parents/guardians
  • one for schools
  • one for service providers

This particular version is for parents/carers/guardians with children/young people either diagnosed with autism or displaying autistic traits.

By this we mean children diagnosed with autism, Asperger Syndrome and other diagnoses on the autism spectrum and also children not diagnosed, but showing autistic traits, whether or not they have been assessed.

The results of this questionnaire will help us to understand how many children in Shropshire have difficulties associated with the autism spectrum and how parents feel services in Shropshire are responding to your child and family’s needs.

To ensure that parents’ views are representative, please complete one questionnaire for each of your children.

To access the survey, please click on the "How to get involved" tab near the top of the page.

* Within the survey, wherever the text states ‘parent’ this also includes carers and guardians. Where the text states ‘child’ this also includes young people.

To help us gather this important information, please complete our online questionnaire.

Remember, if you need to tell us about more than one child, please submit a separate questionnaire for each child.
