Thank you to the children and young people who shared their stories and experiences with us. And to any parents/ carers/ guardians and groups who might have helped young people share their views. 


Helping children and young people with autism have a voice in the design of services in Dorset

Part of the All Age Autism review

The NHS, councils and voluntary sector are currently working together to improve the way autistic people in Dorset are helped to live their lives.

We would like autistic children and young people to have the chance to help us design how autism services might look for them.

Please see our online survey My Autism, My Way , to capture views on what young people with autism think about our ideas so far, as well any other ideas and thoughts.

The survey is aimed at young people up to the age of 25 and has videos explaining each question, and can be done as a group or on an individual basis.

If you are under 16, please ask an adult to complete these questions with you.

Answers are anonymous.

If you would like to find out more about this work, please visit our webpage for more information, or please contact us at

The survey will close midday Tuesday 7 September 2021.

Please share this as widely as possible, with relevant groups, colleagues and friends.

Thank you for your help promoting this important piece of work.
