« on: April 02, 2009, 11:59:35 AM »
see this blog for what is really going on in Northern Ireland regarding autism.

Please think about those who have or live with a loved one who has autism today.

Hi autism northern ireland,

Welcome to the Forum.

One day in the year for thinking about Autism isn't adequate ... lets think about autism three hundred and sixty five days a year ... every year. It's a staggering fact but ninety percent of the population don't realise that autism is extremely common and affects an estimated 1 in 100 people. Many adults with autism face a lack of recognition and understanding, a lack of suitable services and a lack of support, all of which have a devastating impact on them and their families.

You can help the National Autistic Society's Northern Ireland I Exist Campaign for adults with autism by sending a message to your MLAs and telling them why you are supporting the I Exist campaign..  Your letter will be much more powerful if you include your own experiences.  Please take a moment to tell your MLAs about any experiences you have had, for example with finding services, and explain why you are taking action.  www.campaigns.autism.org.uk/ea-campaign/clientcampaign.do?ea.client.id=10&ea.campaign.id=1618
