attached document at the head of the submission.

Other Autism Rights documents
The Autism Rights' Briefing Paper `Incompetent, Abusive, or both? - Scottish
Executive policy and legislation on Autistic Spectrum Disorder` was published
online in April 2007. Since then, the Briefing Paper's critique of the Mental
Health Act and Adult Support and Protection Act has been supported by the
Independent newspaper, Inclusion Scotland, People First and others within the
disability community:-

Autism Rights' analysis of the deficiencies within the current system of
service provision resulted in the online publication of our `Proposals for
Autism Services in Scotland`. Our analysis concludes that cost-effective and
appropriate services for people with Autistic Spectrum Disorders need to be
based on Standards – as detailed in these proposals:-

Associated activities
Autism Rights is a member of the Cross Party Group on Human Rights of the
Scottish Parliament. See:-
http://www.scottish.parliament.uk/msp/crosspartygroups/groups/hr-docs/hr...

Three years ago, Autism Rights supported a petition to the Scottish Parliament
to adopt the European Charter on the Rights of Persons with Autism. This was
signed by over 500 people, some from international autism organisations.

The Charter itself is available at the following link - please click on each
of the `rights` for a fuller description:-
