Autism: diagnosis in Wales can take seven years or longer
Some parents in Wales are having to wait longer than seven years to have their children diagnosed with autism, BBC Wales has learned.
A leading charity says almost half wait more than three years for diagnosis, compared to one-third in England.
The Welsh government says work is under way to improve the diagnosis of children and adults.
It commissioned a report which found a "lack of consistency of services (postcode lottery)".
