i am so lucky to have a place in edinburgh called no6 which is run by autism intiatives which has activities and support for people with high functioning autism or aspergers syndrome i think every city in the uk and ireland should have one

Children with a diagnoses of autism (Asd) in Ireland are not being provided with the services they need and their parents are not being provided with information about services that would help their child to develop to their full potential.

My son is 14years and has aspergers syndrome. He has never seen a NEPs pschologist in his 9 years of school. It took 2 for a speech and language therapy assessment and then four more years for another one. No therapy in between. It took 7 years to get a full OT assessment. I'm lucky he's mild and i read everything i could get to help him because i couldn't rely on the state!

Autism Services are near non existentin Ireland .Why are children with Autism looked after by Psychaitric Services CAMHNS when they are not geared for autism and constantly told becuase of services for psychiatry being under such pressure children like mine do not get priorty at all.In fact they are palce back of queve all the time.3 sessions of speech therapy and yrthe the same of OT is not a service

Please read and sign this petition which aims to stop cuts and improve services for children with autism. It's hard enough having a child with special needs without all the help you need to cope, being cut or being inadequate.
