My husband and grandson have autism. Services have improved in Australia due to the National Disability Insurance Scheme which have helped enormously but my husband is now too old for support. My grandson is doing so well but access to resources and specialists in regional Australia are really difficult. Thank you for an informative interview.

Mr Silberman has made an enormous contribution that will doubtless reverberate in many directions for a long time to come. Thnk U for your hard work. ( I once knew a mother with all 3 of her sons as autistic, 2 of which mostly homebound).

I have two Austin grandchildren. They are cousins. They are as different as Day and night. Wonderful human beings. The youngest is non verbal but is trying to learn sign language. She went bowling for the first time the other day and without instructions go a strike with her first ball! Thank you for your services for these wonderful human beings.
