The aim of this rapid scoping exercise has been to identify gaps and priorities for adult social care research in autism in order to help Autistica to:

- Identify key subtopics within adult social care in autism;

- Understand what we currently know from research on social care in autism;

- Identify gaps in the literature and the potential impact of these gaps on the outcomes experienced by autistic people;

- Identify key opportunities for research;

- Make strategic recommendations for impactful research.

The review was intended to include people from across the autism spectrum and to take a broad view of social care. The review was to focus specifically on the quantity and quality of the evidence to social care related interventions, assessing a range of outcome measures but with a particular focus on Autistica’s vision of people living ‘long, happy and healthy lives’. Where possible findings related to cost effectiveness were also to be extracted.
