Argues that people with autism or Asperger syndrome suffer from social exclusion and barriers to accessing services. Surveys problems relating to their rights to assessment and support; the difficulties they experience in maintaining independent living; their lack of choice in employment and housing; their exclusion from social relationships; and the consequences for them in impaired mental health. Makes recommendations for improved practice, particularly the breaking down of eligibility criteria which may exclude them from learning disability services, and the improvement of transition plans for young people moving into adulthood.
