This publication reports the context, contributors, topics and outcomes of a five event (4x2days & end point conference) seminar series which acknowledged the need for an autism research strategy for Scotland and to relate this to international knowledge and current research in Scotland. The report calls for an Independent Autism Research Consultative Body, the Scottish Autism Strategy Governance Group to meet research relevant Recommendations 7 & 8 of the Autism Strategy and to maintain strong links with the proposed independent body so that research can inform the direction of the Strategy in its second 5 years of implementation, and for researchers in Scotland to make their work widely known for maximum impact in meeting the many issues facing autistic people, their families, carers and the professionals who work with them.
