District Mums Set Up Autism Group To Help Others

A lack of services for autistic children has prompted two district mums to set up their own support group.

Friends Nikki Rodden and Su Buchholz both have sons who are autistic or suffer from Asperger syndrome – an autism spectrum disorder – and cannot attend mainstream school.
