Families on the spectrum

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 9:30 am on 14 January 2019

Today we start a series of interviews with families with children on the autism spectrum.  No experts, no politicians, just family members talking about their hopes for their children and their frustrations with having to fight for help for them to be able to realise their full potential.

It's not just an issue for families of course. The proportion of people on the very broad autism spectrum is increasing, so as a nation we have to think of creative  ways to support them and help them lead full and productive lives.
