Calling from the other side; of an autism diagnosis. Statutory guidance for "diagnosed", Payments, "reasonable adjustments".
But isn't it illegal/unlawful (i know there is a difference but I don't know which), to discriminate based on someones diagnosis?
The equality and disability act mandates that you have a disability if:
- It's long lasting
- Affect daily tasks
- and is either a physical or mental.
So why does the statutory guidance refer to people with an autism diagnosis only?
Even the PIP, Adult social assessment, and working tax credits disability is a needs-based one.
So why isn't the Autism act?
