Children with learning disabilities or autism are more likely to have poor health than other children

There is some research that shows that people who live in poor neighbourhoods often have poorer health than people who live in rich neighbourhoods

We want to find out more about the health of children with learning disabilities or autism in Scotland and the neighbourhoods they live in

To do this we will analyse information from the Scottish Pupil Census

The Scottish Pupil Census collects information from all primary, secondary and special schools in Scotland every year

We will use this to find out how many children with learning disabilities and autism are in Scotland and if this number has changed in the last 7 years

We can also use this to find out if children with learning disabilities and autism in Scotland live in poor or in rich neighbourhoods

We can link the pupil census to information from hospitals to find out about the health of children with learning disabilities and autism in Scotland

We will write a report that will help us understand more about the living circumstances and health of children with learning disabilities and autism in Scotland
