That this House commends the National Autism Society (NAS) for its work to increase and expand diagnosis and support services for those with autism and related developmental problems; recognises the importance of ensuring that diagnosis and support services are targeted and effective to eradicate the isolation and ignorance that those with autism are at risk of experiencing; further recognises that effective services can only be achieved by the Government working closely with the NAS, local authorities and primary care trusts to develop their knowledge and expertise of autism; and calls on the Government to pursue building these relationships in order to transform the lives of both adults and children with autism.
