Hi guys and girls, I need everyones help!! My petition for getting Pathological Demand Avoidance which is on the autistic spectrum recognised over the whole NHS has finally gone live. Please can the lovely people who read this just take 2 mins to sign which could change 1000's of children's lives (and their families in terms of support) throughout the whole United Kingdom. We need 10,000 signatures to get the government to respond. But I'm aiming for 100,000 as it's about time we get this taken seriously. Thank you personally to each and everyone of you who do this. It means so much to me and each and every individual who this condition affects and gets ignored for help/support/diagnosis Much love please also feel free to share to as many places around the UK as possible and let's let the power of the internet do something truly amazing xx
I've signed the petition. Good luck.
I'm guessing there are few stubborn hospitals. And it is exhausting carrying around a copy of the DSM-IV. Perhaps a copy of the autism strategy.
"Terminology8. Throughout the guidance, as in the strategy, we use the term “autism” as an umbrella term for all autistic spectrum conditions, including Asperger Syndrome. - Statutory guidance for Local Authorities and NHS organisations to support implementation of the Adult Autism Strategy"
Well that's brilliant. Good luck with that.
I take it you have experience with explaining stuff to NHS staff.
