Did You Know?
(Courtesy of the NAS) The NAS leads national and international initiatives, including campaigning and lobbying the government, providing a strong voice for autism. Work includes involvement in many areas in order to help autistic people live their lives with as much independence as possible, as well as raising awareness.


• 40% of all autistic children wait more than three years for a clear diagnosis.


• 4 in 10 GPs do not have enough information about autism to make an informed assessment.


• Autistic children are 20 times more likely to be excluded from school than other children. The main reason being that the school was unable to cope with the child.


• 49% of autistic adults are still living at home with their parents. Although 70% of parents felt that their son or daughter would be able to live independently without support.


• 65% of these autistic adults had not had an official care assessment and are therefore unlikely to be known by any supporting bodies.


• Only 1 in 4 local authorities are sufficiently preparing to meet the needs of autistic people when their parents are too old to cope or have died.


• Only 6% of autistic adults are in full-time paid employment.


• Only 20% of autistic adults are in any employment.


• Autistic adults say that finding a suitable job would improve their lives more than anything else.


• 21% of people with learning differences(including autism) surveyed had been subject to physical attacks in the past year.

MUSIC


“Derek Paravicini”
Derek (b. 1979) is an extraordinarily talented pianist, despite being blind and having severe learning difficulties.
He plays entirely by ear, and has a repertoire of many thousands of pieces that he has memorised – jazz, pop and light classical – and he is a great improviser.
Derek has played in venues across the UK, including Ronnie Scott’s and the Barbican Halls in London, and he has appeared in the news media across the world.
His first commercial CD is now available for purchase, and a biography and documentary about his life are due to appear in the US and the UK in the near future.
