          Abstract

          Purpose

          The purpose of this paper is to comment on the development and implementation of transforming care (TC) and whether it has failed people with autism.

          Design/methodology/approach

          This paper is a commentary.

          Findings

          The number of people with autism being admitted to assessment and treatment units is increasing despite the aims of TC. The authors argue that TC, in serving such a diverse group of people, may have failed to identify the heterogeneity of such groups or recognise the different needs of people with mental illness and people with behaviours that challenge; and that TC could be regarded as a policy that only affects people with an intellectual disability.

          Originality/value

          Policymakers, policy implementers and health and social care staff may consider reviewing their practice to ensure that TC works for people with autism and their family and carers.
