AS the parent of a child with autism, I am very worried about what will happen as they get older.

Autism is a lifelong condition yet, as I Exist, the new report from the National Autistic Society, has found, many adults with the disability struggle to get the help they so desperately need. Many feel isolated and ignored, and are entirely dependent on their families for support. I want to see the right services and support in place so people with autism in Ramsey can reach their true potential - the right help at the right time can have a profound effect.

That is why I am supporting the NAS "think differently about autism" campaign. I urge people in Ramsey to visit www.think-differently.org.uk and help put pressure on local and national government to do more to transform the lives of adults with autism.
