Orders of the Day — Mentally Handicapped Children (18 May 1960)

Mr William Carr: ...showing that there are new factors which can be taken up and new successes which are still available. The most exciting thing, which is still a frontier to be crossed, is the work on causes and treatment of so-called autistic —sometimes called schizoid, sometimes psychotic—children, which is almost unknown territory. These children are apparently schizoids who live in a dream...

Petition: Teacher Training Colleges (Admission) (3 Aug 1962)

Mr James Boyden: a very great unbalance as between men and women and a very great unbalance as between the arts and the sciences. For example, the actual numbers of students with art qualifications are 192 men with Advanced level and 740 women. I am quite sure that the autistic talents of the nation are not so ill distributed between men and women as that figure indicates. In English literature at "A"...

Orders of the Day — London Government Bill (10 Dec 1962)

Mr Michael Maitland Stewart: ...illustrates that strikingly. The hon. Member for Barons Court (Mr. Compton Carr) will be interested since he raised it recently in the London County Council. It is the problem of children known as autistic, a special kind of psychological disorder, the real nature of which is still being discovered and diagnosed. Some of those children are considered suitable for education at a special...

London Government Bill (11 Dec 1962)

Mr William Carr: logical progression by a larger authority such as the L.C.C. We have been keen to have small units in the L.C.C. and I see no reason why we should have inefficient units in these new boroughs. The hon. Member for Bermondsey (Mr. Mellish) mentioned autistic children, in whom he knows I am interested. In the L.C.C. area we can have only two or three autistic children per teacher, because...

Orders of the Day — Autistic Children (Education and Training)

Orders of the Day — Clause 30. — (Local Education Authori Ties.) (1 Apr 1963)

Mr Percy Holman: ...needs of all the different children in London. It cannot be equalled because of the number of varied types of school children in London. In an Adjournment debate a week last Friday we heard about autistic children. The Conservative Member who raised the subject became aware, I think, of that word eight or nine weeks ago, and it is extremely interesting to note that on the very day that he...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (19 Dec 1963)

Miss Joan Vickers: ...and physically handicapped. Far too many parents have the greatest difficulty in dealing with handicapped children. What can a mother do with a five-year old handicapped child, especially if he is autistic? There is often nowhere that she can send him. I know that the provision of more nursery schools will prove expensive, but I think that the results will be worth while in the end,...

Prayers: Deaf and Blind Persons (21 Feb 1964)

Lord Balniel: ...people as any in the country. They tell me that a considerable number of children are brought to the attention of the Association as being thought to be mentally handicapped, mentally deficient or autistic. In fact, they are often found to be not mentally handicapped, mentally deficient or autistic but afflicted by deafness. Too often their real disability is not diagnosed correctly early...

Mentally Handicapped Children (18 Feb 1966)

Miss Joan Vickers: ...interest in the children. I should like this point considered. We have come a long way in our knowledge of the mentally handicapped, but there is one section where there seems to be very little progress. This is in the care of autistic children, who are among the most difficult for parents to cope with. As my right hon. Friend said, there is some way to get on with most children, but...

Orders of the Day — Primary Education (Plowden Report) (16 Mar 1967)

Mr William Van Straubenzee: ...chord. There is a need for the co-ordination of the many services available to such parents, many of whom have a deep sense of shame, have had to overcome a sense of shock, and, in the case for instance of autistic children are dealing with deficiencies which they do not understand. Yet our services are quite remarkable and sometimes are not used. However, since I have had some hard things...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause No. 37. — (Repayments to Charities.) (21 Jun 1967)

Mrs Jill Knight: ...and it is an extraordinarily important source of income to the charities which benefit from it. It is helpful to know some of these charities. There are a great number, and I will mention a few: autistic children—a real Cinderella of a charity—the Cancer Research Fund, blind babies, chest diseases, mentally handicapped children and marriage guidance. All of these are helped by...

Sonic Bangs (25 Jul 1967)

Mr Ivor Richard: the vicinity—the test carried out on Friday being the worst of all. Many of the buildings around West Kensington are not in the soundest of condition, despite all sorts of repairs, and frequent sonic booms would surely weaken them… We have an autistic child who is extremely sensitive to sound and who hates loud and sudden noises. We would have to try and move away to...

Education (Autistic Children)

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Subnormal Children (Diagnosis and Treatment) (26 Mar 1969)

Mr Edwin Brooks: I thank my hon. Friend for that information, but will not he agree that there is an urgent need for quick and effective diagnosis of childhood disorders such as autism, dyslexia and childhood schizophrenia which, if not handled very early on, can later cause severe difficulties? Is he entirely satisfied that health visitors and general practitioners are fully up to date and conversant with...

Ely Hospital, Cardiff (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Is my right hon Friend aware that autistic children who are often not mentally subnormal are often sent to hospitals for the mentally subnormal where they should not be, and where there is no treatment available for them? Secondly, when the inspectorate, or whatever it is to be called, is set up, will the inspectors pay their visits without warning to the hospitals for the mentally subnormal,...

South Ockendon Hospital (14 Apr 1969)

Mr Tom Driberg: Would it be possible slightly to reduce the number of patients by removing to a more suitable place intelligent but autistic children who can receive no training at South Ockendon?

Playgroups (23 May 1969)

Miss Joan Lestor: ...the Under-Secretary of State for Health and Social Security after his recent illness? In an earlier debate today, my hon. Friend the Member for Gravesend (Mr. Murray) raised the question of the autistic child and referred to the 3,000 children who are desperately in need. I want to refer to a slightly larger number of young children who are also in great need of help, and I have in mind...
