Calls for better autism support in France

The Guardian features a report about the care and support of autistic people in France, highlighting a recent UN report which found that many children are not able to access mainstream education and are placed in psychiatric units. The article discusses the use of psychoanalysis with autistic people in France, and looks at calls to ban its use in favour of educational therapies. It includes several case studies of autistic children and young people, and highlights the President’s announcement of an autism action plan to improve the support of autistic people in France.
