Ontology Based Framework for Autistic Care

This ontology defines a framework for autistic care best practice that places the service user at the heart of it. Five core perspectives are covered in the model:

  • Knowledge of autism as disability: This requires understanding the service user in relation to the autism spectrum.
  • Resources and responsibilities: This requires understanding one’s resources and responsibilities towards the service user.
  • Implementation of strategies: This requires understanding of the high-level strategies implemented by the service provider.
  • Operational principles: This requires understanding day to day techniques, methods and practical abilities applied by care workers in the field.
  • Sociotechnical factors: This considers the social and technical aspects that impact on the service user’s behaviour and feelings.
