London, UK) Autism Campaigners are calling on Britainís Prime Minister Gordon Brown and his Governmentís Secretary of State for Children Ed Balls, to spell out their plans for Autism and Aspergerís Syndrome on World Autism Day scheduled to be commemorated on 2nd April 2008.
The United Nations General Assembly designated World Autism Awareness Day on the recommendation of Qatar. This is the first ever international day for autism. Ivan Corea, head of the Autism Awareness Campaign UK congratulated Qatar for taking this step and urged British Prime Minister Gordon Brown to back a national strategy on autism and a 10 year plan of action on autism and Aspergerís Syndrome.
There are over 60 million people with autism across the world - many on the spectrum in countries in Africa and Asia do not have access to any public services. The Autism Awareness Campaign UK is urging the Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon to look into this matter and has requested United Nations Agencies to reach out and support children with adults and autism in the Third World.
Autism is now a very serious education and health issue around the world. In the United Kingdom there are over 500,000 people with autism. According to UK researchers 1 in 100 children may have autism.
