A Longford autism advocate says she'd like to see more supports put in place for young autistic people

A Longford autism advocate says she'd like to see more supports put in place for young autistic people.

Kate Ann Rowan says while good progress seems to be made in supporting children, there isn't so much attention for teenagers or young adults who face challenges.

She's presently involved in establishing a new online facility called 'actually autistic' which will feature autistic people recounting their experiences, and says this is one of the best ways for people to learn more.
