Held Back campaign

Autistic children in England are being let down and held back by the education system. More than 4 in 10 families are being turned away when asking for extra help. Schools and local councils don't understand how to help autistic children learn. Parents have to fight for the support their child is entitled to. 

Our campaign aims to make sure no child is held back because they're autistic. 

This campaign action is now closed – but thank you to the thousands upon thousands of people who signed our open letter.
