The autism strategy has been developed within the social model of disability. It recognises that disability is caused by the way society is organised, rather than by autism itself and considers ways of removing barriers that restrict life choices for autistic people. The strategic framework identifies opportunities to remove barriers, so autistic people living in Nottingham can be independent and equal, with greater choice and control over their own lives. The strategy has been developed by Nottingham City's Autism Co-production Group and has taken into account the views of autistic people, their families, professionals who work with them including voluntary/ community, private and public organisations across Nottingham City, to ensure individuals are enabled to live their lives with dignity, choice and independence.
Nottingham city's vision is for autistic people, including high functioning autism to be acknowledged, to have equal opportunities regardless of their cultural background or age, to live fulfilling and rewarding lives and for there to be recognition that for citizens with autistic spectrum conditions "One Size Fits One." This might be through their social, family or employment circumstances, access to universal services or more targeted services.

Good mental and emotional health is essential to enable children and young people to fulfil their potential. Mental and emotional health problems are an important and common group of disorders affecting about 1 in 10 children and young people living in the UK. Mental health is best seen as a continuum, ranging from mental wellbeing, to severe and enduring mental disorders that cause considerable distress and interfere with relationships and daily functioning. Mental health problems vary in their nature and severity, and affect individuals differently over time. The factors that affect mental and emotional health are complex, ranging from individual biological factors to complex societal issues. Mental health problems in childhood and adolescence are particularly important due to the far reaching consequences on health, social and educational outcomes. Mental health problems unlike other health problems tend to start early and persist into and throughout adulthood. It is recognised that by the age of 14 about half of all lifetime mental health problems start. The aim of this Health Needs Assessment is `to systematically assess the emotional and mental health needs of children and young people aged 0-18 living in Nottingham City and investigate current service provision.Â¿
