A.T.A.C. also fights for REMEDIAL PROGRAMMES for children who are autistic and who are over school starting age.

The failure of all Governments in Tasmania to provide adequate diagnosis and pre-school early intervention services means that many children with autism are arriving at school completely unprepared and unable to cope.

There are no trained aides available if they do qualify for them.

Autistic children are leaving school incontinent and unable to speak. Many breakdown completely.

These children need to be withdrawn from school and put into appropriate programmes until they are ready to cope with the social and academic pressures of school.

Much more training is required for teachers of autistic children and for their support staff.
