Autistic adults want action

16th October 2008

Almost three-quarters of autistic adults in Northern Ireland have said they do not receive "enough support" according to a report.

The report from the National Autistic Society (NAS) stated that there were too few service available for people with autism. Regina Cox, regional coordinator for NAS, said their new campaign "aims to address the problems they [autistic adults] face and the barriers which prevent them from getting the right support. We are calling on the Northern Ireland Assembly to think, act, and transform lives."
