We are developing a new section on our website to help people with additional needs, such as autistic people or those with sensory processing issues, their families and carers.
We want to empower every autistic person to have good oral health, to give them the same chance as everyone else.
There are increasing numbers of children being diagnosed with autism. As it is a spectrum condition, people living with autism experience varying levels of challenges and needs for e.g., in forming relationships, understanding abstract concepts and sensory processing.
Bearing this in mind, we want to ensure that we make the most needed information available, so this may take us some time to gather and research.
Please be patient and watch this space!
