Up to 7,000 children a year are to benefit from a new £18 million centre that will dramatically cut the time it takes to diagnose autism.
The Caudwell International Children’s Centre will be officially launched this Thursday (16th May) and has already attracted 72 applications.
Under current NHS guidelines, young people showing autistic tendencies are meant to be assessed within three months. But a recent national report revealed many families
were being forced to wait at least two years for an assessment and almost four years to receive a diagnosis.
This year the team will be raising money for families to benefit from this superb new centre and hope to be passing the £20,000 mark. Please take a virtual tour of the
new Caudwell Children Centre...
