Fund Improved Diagnosis Pathways For Neurodivergence
We are asking for funding to improve diagnosis pathways for neurodivergence.
This includes ausistic spectrum disorder (ASD), attention defeceit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), dyscalculia, dysgraphia, dyslexia, dyspraxia, tourette's syndrome, all personality disorders and more.
The diagnosis pathway for any neurodivergence is essential for ensuring appropriate and effective courses of treatment in most cases.
However, the time it currently takes to get a formal diagnosis can be many months, or even several years. This lost time affects the neurodiverse population's mental health, productivity and safety.
The provision of funding for improved diagnosis pathways would be an important first step towards addressing this.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
