Many high functioning autistic children aren't achieving their full potential due to the lack of support available to them in the current educational system. If they do not have a learning difficulty they won't necessarily fit the criteria for a specialist unit but with socia/lsensory//behavioural difficulties they often struggle in a mainstream setting. The National Autistic Society recognises there is a gap in the education system for these children and have begun setting up 'Free Schools' to help cater for their needs. A group of parents have got together and decided that something needs to be done and we are petitioning for a school like this to to be set up in Plymouth. Please sign this petition to show your support and pass onto as many people as possible. Thank you

    Good luck guys I truly hope you manage to secure the funding these youngsters so richly need and deserve. It is a tragic fact that parents have to go to these lengths to secure the education opportunities our grandfathers fought to guarantee would be provided by the state for everyone.
