More support for autistic children who show aggressive behaviour

The BBC reports on calls by the National Autistic Society (NAS) for local councils and the NHS to offer more support to autistic children and young people with aggressive behaviour. The article interviews several parents whose children show aggressive behaviour at home, and discusses the impact it has on the whole family. The NAS suggests that if more support were in place then families would be able to address aggressive behaviour before it escalates.
