Parenting: Autism

Dr Sarah Lister Brook, Clinical Director at the National Autistic Society and Emma Gill, mother of four-year-old Sophie who was diagnosed with autism, talk to Jane.

There is no single 'autism test'. But as diagnosis can lead to a child getting the right support, what do you do if you think that your child may be autistic? How do you get a diagnosis and what can you do to support your child? Jane speaks to Emma Gill whose four year old daughter has been diagnosed with autism and Dr Sarah Lister Brook, clinical lead at the National Autistic Society’s Lorna Wing.
