ACT NOW Call For Trained Autism Advocates

Additional Information

Every adult with a diagnosis of an Autistic Spectrum Condition who has to undertake a Work Capability Assessment or Personal Independence Payment Assessment should be offered an advocate at the first point of contact by the Department of Wo...rk and Pensions. The advocate must be experienced in working with people with an Autism Spectrum Condition. The Work Capability Assessment process and the assessment itself is placing adults with autism at a substantial disadvantage when compared to adults who do not have an Autism Spectrum Condition due to their impairment in communication and socialisation.See More
