We Need An Education

We Need An Education debate 

Too many autistic children and young people are being denied an education. Ambitious about Autism research shows they are much more at risk of exclusion and much more likely to experience stress and anxiety at school.

Many of the youth patrons have first hand knowledge of these problems and hosted a debate in central London in 2018 to bring together decision-makers to discuss and tackle some of the problems preventing all young people from achieving their potential.
