'You have to fight for everything' to tackle autism

Children in parts of Wales are waiting an average of two years for an autism assessment despite a target of six months, figures have shown.

Research by BBC Wales' Wales Live programme has revealed staffing issues have also impacted on waiting times.

The Welsh Government said the roll-out of a national integrated autism plan was continuing.

Clare Norton, from Pembrokeshire, shares her experience of trying to get an autism assessment and then support for son, Ethan.
