Autism Functioning labels

Autism presents very differently from person to person

In my experience the problem we see with Autism functioning labels is that the “High Functioning” label is used to deny support and the “Low functioning” label is used to deny agency.

It is extremely frustrating for a parent to be denied any support for their child on the basis that a professional deems them to be "too high functioning" or "not autistic enough."

Your either autistic or your not and denying support to a child with a disability is unethical and unlawful.

Further information and legislation is available on our website.

We have a range of courses here on offer, We are based in Aberdeen however our information sessions are also available on Zoom.
