Showcasing the success of the Scottish Strategy for Autism - the special Scottish edition of GAP
BILD is producing a special Scottish edition of Good Autism Practice to showcase the research, projects and initiatives that have developed as a result of the Scottish Strategy for Autism. This is an excellent opportunity for practitioners to share and disseminate their work.
The co-editors for this special edition of GAP are Professor Tommy MacKay and Dr Glenys Jones.
BILD would welcome submissions to the special edition from across Scotland, including the many projects and initiatives funded through the strategy, in order to showcase the improved outcomes for children and adults with autism and their family members.

The links to the notes for contributors are given below, together with 3 previous papers from the journal, to give you an idea of the nature of the GAP papers. Also attached is a copyright form to be completed and sent in with your paper.
