Ambitions of the Birmingham Autism and ADHD Partnership Board (BAAPB)
Birmingham Autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) Partnership Board’s aims are:
- People who are Autistic and/or have ADHD are enabled to reach their full potential and play a full role in society.
- People who are Autistic and/or have ADHD are enabled to have the skills and confidence required to keep themselves safe and well.
- The gap in life expectancy between people who are Autistic and/or have ADHD and the general population is reduced.
The BAAPB supports and receives reports from a Birmingham Autism and ADHD Task Group. The Task Group has a set of Workstreams that deliver against priorities in a Birmingham Autism and ADHD Delivery Plan. The Delivery Plan aims to improve the lives of people in Birmingham who are Autistic and/or have ADHD.
The Workstreams agreed for 2020 to 2021 are:
- Diagnosis and Diagnostic Pathways
- Early Intervention
- Preparation for Adulthood
- Lifelong Support and Development for Adults
- Employment and Beneficial Activities
- Community Support of Citizens and Families
- Workforce Development and Culture
The Task Group also provides updates on progress against the Delivery Plan to the Strategic Life Course Board and, via that Board, to the Birmingham Children’s Partnership Executive.
