Assessment and Diagnoses of Autism
Finding out that somebody close to you may require assessment into whether they have autism is never an easy process to go through. But it is one that is best done as early as possible.
Early diagnoses of the problem, especially in children, can lead to vital interventions that could be potentially life-altering.
According to statistics coming out of the UK, over 70%of children with autism are educated in mainstream schools. The others go through special arrangements. As a parent or guardian, one thing that stands paramount in your mind is properly equipping your child to live a rewarding life. This is even more pertinent for those with autistic children. Another statistic from the UK: 60% of teachers in the UK do not feel that they have adequate training to teach children with autism, while 35% think that it has become harder to access specialist support for children with autism.
