Many autistic adults, children and their families have been to me for help in the last two years, especially where children are unable to get the support they need at school, and young adults need support to be able to work or live independently.
People with conditions including Dyslexia, Autism, Dyspraxia, who have ADHD or a wide range of other neurological differences need that difference to be recognised, diagnosed and supported.
I am pleased to have signed the Labour Autism Neurodiversity Manifesto which commits to improve services for people living with these conditions including in their health, education, employment, and experience of the justice system.
A Labour government will support everyone who needs it and I hope will be able. To improve the suffering and exclusion too many people face now.
