We have heard that the ATOS health care professionals are going to be given a training module on autism. We are at the moment trying to find out what that module will include and who put it together. However clearly these assessments are up and running without any training being given to these assessors and this really shows that they neither care nor feel any responsibility towards people with autism enough to get it right.
We are at the moment trying to set up an ACT NOW network and are asking people if they would be willing to be coordinators because we want to gather as much information as we possibly can about what is happening in every area across the UK. I know that that is a tall order but we currently have 6000 supporters so we are hoping that we get a good response from them.
Please do keep in touch with us. We all need to act together if we have any hope of being heard, and we are afterall the people who are living with autism 24/7.
