Autism: The NICE Guideline on Recognition, Referral, Diagnosis and Management of Adults on the Autism Spectrum

    Autism is a lifelong condition with particular issues for adults, which are addressed by this NICE guideline. While some people are diagnosed in childhood, a large proportion of adults with autism find obtaining a diagnosis in adulthood difficult or impossible. Under-recognition of autism in adults can lead to inadequate care, masking of coexisting mental and physical health problems, and to social and economic exclusion. This guideline aims to address these widespread problems and increase the uptake of interventions by adults with autism to enable them to live more independent lives. This guideline reviews the evidence for care of adults with autism across the care pathway, from identification, assessment and diagnosis, to organisation, delivery and settings for care, through to psychosocial and biomedical interventions for autism, challenging behaviour and coexisting mental health problems. The guideline also contains a chapter on the experience of care for adults with autism, and their families and carers, which provides a context for the evidence reviews that follow. The guideline contains all the evidence on which the recommendations were based, including further data on a free CD-ROM which includes: characteristics of included studies; profile tables that summarise both the quality of the evidence and the results of the evidence synthesis; all meta-analytical data, presented as forest plots, and detailed information about how to use and interpret them.
