Claudia talks to us about her struggle to gain a diagnosis for her daughter and how hard it can be to find the right supports at the right time.

Too many autistic people are abandoned after diagnosis with zero effective support.

Every autistic person is different but many have learning differences or co-occurring health conditions that require specialist support.

By 2030 we want autistic people and their families to be offered personalised support from day one to ensure they are receiving the help they need when they need it.

I do think having the diagnosis helped us because my child was labelled as a nuisance all throughout her life... I think she's amazing. She sees and thinks about things differently. She does question. She does wonder why things are the way they are.
