Don't write me off campaign gets backing from MPs

A third of people with autism in the U.K. - around 100,000 people - currently live without a job and without benefits. The Public Accounts Committee of the House of Commons has recently published a report on adults with autism calling for improved support and making a number of key recommendations including improved training for staff working in health, social care, benefits and employment services.
