Knowing me , knowing Autism is a BBC radio 4 documentary about me,It’s part of the I’s my story series. it will be broadcast on monday 6th may 2013 at 8pm.
It is important to know that not everyone on the Autistic spectrum is the same, many people on the Autistic spectrum who don’t have a learning disability or mental health condition do not get access to services, and are therefore expected to go through life unsupported. But Because of difficulties such as understanding intentions of others and reading body language, this means they can be vulnerable to exploitation and abuse.
To simply say you don’t have a learning disability or mental health condition so you don’t need services is not good enough.
Equally those with a learning disability and Autism or mental health condition and Autism need appropriate support too
