New analysis reveals autism assessment and support crisis with tens of thousands of children waiting months and years for help after demand rockets by over 300% since Covid.

A report published today by the Child of the North initiative – led by the N8 Research Partnership of Northern universities and others – and former Children’s Commissioner Anne Longfield’s new Centre for Young Lives think tank, reveals a crisis in children’s autism assessment, warning that thousands of autistic children and young people are waiting months – or even years – for health and education support.

A number of ARC Yorkshire and Humber projects were used in the analysis. Including Born in Bradford (https://borninbradford.nhs.uk/what-we-do/cohort-studies/bib-family-cohort/ ) and Connected Bradford (https://borninbradford.nhs.uk/what-we-do/cohort-studies/connected-bradford/)
