World Autism Month 2021 - Children, Autism and Education: Challenges and Opportunities

April 2 marked the 14th anniversary that the day was designated as World Autism Awareness Day by the United Nations (UN). Aiming to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism, autism friendly and educational events will take place throughout the month of April. We take this opportunity to discuss the prevalence of autism and in particular the research that has been done at Liverpool to highlight in particular the legal challenges children with autism face in the context of accessing their educational and health care rights.
