My nephew was admitted to a care facility,who are understaffed by 20+..He gets in fits where it takes 4 people to hold him down, staff are over worked..There's such dire need for help, i feel for this family.

So much depends on the NHS & education authorities locally. In the UK, support services & systems can be impressively good - and in the next District, abominable. In my family, there are several special needs children - one has had superb support within the "normal" system, another has been less lucky but things are now sorting themselves out, & a third has been difficult, limiting the way he accessed potentially excellent support. (It is very hard to force people on the autism spectrum to do things against their will!!)

I do hope that Matthew's family manage to get things back on track, & Matthew into appropriate support systems.

For some reason, change.org seems to be running excessively slowly (I'm not sure that my signature has actually registered)

I am autistic, and fortunately (but also unfortunately) grew up when it was first being understood. Also, my father was determined to see to it that people treated me right, and that autistic children would receive the care and compassion they need. In the final analysis, I have made my autism a blessing rather than a curse. My unique way of viewing and experiencing the world has helped me discover and learn in a special way so I see what a lot of people miss.

VICTORY! This petition made change with 335,801 supporters!!!

Sep 13, 2016 — Yesterday was Matthew's 16th birthday. It was the second birthday he has spent under section in a hospital. A year on and still he has no discharge plan or date.

Hear his story, and those of other desperate families whose vulnerable children remain detained in ATUs miles away from home and from those that know and love them.

Please listen in to Radio 4's FILE ON FOUR programme tonight at 8pm or listen retrospectively by using the link below:
