NHS is fail­ing autis­tic chil­dren

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

THE nHS is fail­ing young­sters with autism, a char­ity warned to­day. More than 70 per cent of chil­dren with autism also have a mental health prob­lem which is pre­ventable or treat­able, such as de­pres­sion or ob­ses­sive com­pul­sive dis­or­der. Ac­cord­ing to the na­tional Autis­tic So­ci­ety (nAS), these is­sues are of­ten dis­missed by health work­ers as “un­for­tu­nate” or “un­avoid­able” side­ef­fects of autism.
