Quotes

Professor Nicola Shaughnessy, from the University's School of Arts, said: "The methods we used in the research have been recognised as having potential for development in the diagnosis of autism, revealing areas of ability, as well as difficulty."
"Knowing that your child is different to other children, having many issues from behaviour problems to social and sensory difficulties is very stressful for parents, but when they then have to battle with the system to get a diagnosis and support can lead a lot of parents to the point where they are suffering from health problems of their own as well as trying to cope with their children."
Headteacher Sarah Aston said: "All the staff came in with a comfortable and relaxed mood and that transferred through to the children."
"Your child could have difficulty with social communication, interaction and imagination"
