The Government has today launched a 'Call for Views' on how the education system is working for children with special educational needs (SEN) and disabilities.
They will use the information they get from this to write a 'Green Paper' which will set out proposals for reform. The Green Paper is expected to be published later this year.
The National Autistic Society will be responding to this Call for Views. Later this year, we will also be carrying out some research with parents of children with autism, children with autism and professionals to inform our response to the Green Paper. More information on this research will follow on this page.
If you want to take part in the current Call for Views, go to the Department for Education's website. You have until 15th October 2010 to let them know what you think.
Please also leave a comment below, telling us what you think would make the biggest change for children with autism.
