Many people at the higher functioning end of the autistic spectrum live independently and do not receive support or advocacy. Over the years, many have learned to mask their autistic traits, so they are not obvious and others may fail to recognise or accept them. These “hidden” problems can place people with autism at a disadvantage in situations where their health, welfare or employment needs are being evaluated.

The passport can be filled in easily and can be presented in any situation, to social, health or employment professionals. Reading it will inform the recipient of the specific needs of the individual and help them to make the necessary adjustments to deliver a tailored and effective service.
