Training to be an Early years educator i can see what a huge impact  long waiting lists have on childrens development,learning and well being.My son is Autistic and it took 2 years for him to be statemented and 4 years to get the support i need as his carer (Autism workshop through school) as i was told our local Autism support centre in Bradford was closed due to cuts and lack of funds.My son is currently experiencing some mental health problems i have been told to wait a month to see the school nurse.So i ring camms a mental health centre in bradford they  say there is a 4-5 month waiting list.The school have been very supportive but explained  its a triage system and it will be a month until you see the nurse.In the mean time my son is very emotionally distressed and  besides reassuring him and cuddling him there is no more i can do other than wait..... These children are our future and they need our help.They need help now not when it is too late when they have already fallen behind at school and they are experiencing worsening mental health symptoms.This is just mine and My sons story im sure others can relate to this with their children and what they have had to go through to help their children.Children should not have to fight to be heard being a child is hard enough sometimes.
