Impact of Covid-19 on the experiences of parents and family carers of autistic children and young people in the UK
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractA new study led by the Institute of Education at University College London, in collaboration with the University of East London and the University of Bedfordshire, has shed light on the experiences of the parents and carers of autistic children and young people during lockdown in the UK. The findings reveal that many families feel let down by the government and that they have had to face the lockdown tackling new struggles, often with significantly reduced support. However, parents and carers also experienced a number of positives, providing important lessons for support and health services and education providers in the future.
