Eight out of 10 autistic children experience anxiety over going to school
Eight out of 10 autistic children find going to school so stressful that they experience anxiety. Of those, 58% find this anxiety so debilitating that they miss days at school, according to a new survey.

The report, entitled When Will We Learn?, by charity Ambitious about Autism, looks at the impact of the school system when it fails children and young people with autism and their families. Many families struggle to get the right support for their children, who, as a result, are not receiving the education they are entitled to.
