Motion text

That this House is aware that a recent report by the National Autistic Society entitled Too Much Information, why the public needs to understand autism better, found that half of autistic people and families sometimes don't go out because they are worried about how people will react to their condition; believes that people should learn through Government endeavour their lack of understanding of autism and the consequences of such a lack of knowledge about the way it affects lives; and calls upon the Government to invest in promoting a better public understanding of the condition and the services sufferers and their families need throughout their lives.
