I also met the ABC Parent Support Group...

I had been contacted by Susan McDonagh who is the Chairperson of the Leeds ABC Suport Group. Susan and the other group members wanted to see me to discuss their concerns about provision for children and young people with an Autistic Spectrum Condition. I hadn't realised that new studies indicate that the number of children with autism is 25 times higher than the accepted figures in the 1990.

It was a really helpful meeting and we agreed to work with the group to review and develop our provision which would involve further developing the wonderful STARS service and building on the excellent provision for children with autism at the NE SILC West Oaks, Windmill Primary School and St Mary's Catholic High School.
