Dear Ellie I have a question! I'd love my husband to learn to cook, are there any good courses in Bristol to assist him in learning the skills to rustle up a tasty dish or two?! Thank you! Jenny
Thank you Jenny. I am on the case. Will be back in touch soon.
Hi ellie my question is why is the help available for autistic children diagnosis first? So many families are left with little or no help while awaiting the ASD assessment. The assessment waiting lists are so long and meanwhile parents and children are left to suffer.
I also have another question why has the criteria for Educational health care plans gone up? Many children with special needs are not getting the help they desperately need and are not reaching their full potential. Surely there must be a way for parents and children to get the help they deserve without the constant fight and battles with health professionals and schools. We already have so much to deal with.
Just to let you know I have been in touch with The National Autistic Society They tell me they have been inundated with questions like yours and have started a campaign to get earlier diagnosis.
They tell me they are finding the right person to answer your question and will be in touch asap.
I am also speaking to people locally.
Will let you know when I have more. Ellie
