DESCRIPTION

Parents of children with autism know better than anyone else what educational and public services their child needs. They also know the deficiencies of the system and the frustrations encountered while trying to obtain such services. Constructive Campaigning for Autism Services is an essential guide to effective campaigning for appropriate services for children with autism, written by PACE (The Parents' Autism Campaign for Education).

Based on the real-life experiences, dilemmas and questions of parents themselves involved in campaigning, this practical handbook explains how the system works both at local and national levels and provides invaluable information about local authority structures and government policy. The guide outlines different campaign methods and their effectiveness, and shows how parents can draw up a tailor-made plan for their position. It also shows that parents who have fought for services for their own child can use their experiences to improve provision for all children with autism.

This will be an essential handbook for all parents and others who are actively involved in campaigning for better autism services.
