Chair's letter to the press

Carlisle Mencap chair Christine Bowditch had a lead letter printed in the News & Star welcoming the recent spotlight on autism. In the letter, which was printed in the August 1 edition, Christine said: 'In both my autism champion role, chairwoman of Carlisle Mencap and as a parent of a child on the autism spectrum I appreciate your drawing atention to the very real issues concerning diagnosis and living with autism." The letter was in response to an article showing that children are more likely to be excluded from schools in Cumbria than other pupils acording to new data.
