Abstract

The Microsegmentation Project was funded by the Scottish Government through Scottish Autism to take forward key recommendations of the Scottish Strategy for Autism.(Scottish Government, 2011)

It was recommended that Knapp's work on the economic cost of autism is analysed and applied to the Scottish context to inform strategy and planning on what interventions lead to positive impacts both for the individuals and for the economy as a whole.
