Stop autism diagnosis being reduced in Merton and St George's to save money
This petition had 1,567 supporters
Proposals to reduce the number of children being diagnosed with autism are being considered by NHS commissioners in South West London.
Without the diagnosis there is no support financially or medically for the Autistic person, child or families of autistic people. The diagnosis of Autism is vital for Autistic people to acsess this support as without it the results could be catastrophic and detrimental to their well-being.
If this goes ahead this will leave many people without access to a diagnosis and unable to access the specialist support that they desperately need. That will threaten their long term prospects and put a greater strain on many already vulnerable families.
Neuro diversity has the right to be recognised and celebrated. No diagnosis = No voice !!! This cannot happen !!!
