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

    This is not just a nice idea... this is a must! Until very recently I have been working in mainstream with autistic children amd have watched the stripping of allocated support and see a widespread lack of understanding as to the needs of these young people. They have a right to an appropriate education system just like everyone else. Not only does this avoid distress but it also strengthens their chances of entering into the adult world as productive people with so much to offer. Please let this happen.

    This petition needs as many people to sign as possible. It is a brilliant idea and needs more help and attention from the Government and local councils to cater for these children.
