A Blackpool MP has pledged support for a national campaign aimed at helping children with autism get better education.
MP for Blackpool North and Cleveleys, Paul Maynard, attended the launch and added his support to Ambitious about Autism’s campaign Ruled Out.
He said: “With the right support, children with autism can continue to learn and develop their knowledge and skills at school, just like any other pupil.
“The Children and Families Bill is a brilliant opportunity to make certain the ongoing reforms to special educational needs ensure that children with autism get the support they need at school.”
The campaign aims to cut the number of children with autism being informally excluded from school.
