Autism Without Treatment

Below is a Youtube Video entitled Autism Without Treatment.

The content is self evident and disturbing. The language used in the video is not politically correct, (though that's the least of which is shocking about it).
It was created from footage in the 1960's.

Today, in Northern Ireland there are still people who have autism  who have lived most of their adult lives in "mental" hospitals.

Adults who suspect they have autism in Northern Ireland face an exceptionally long and protracted process to receive a diagnosis, much less help or understanding. They are often pigeon-holed into learning disability and/or mental health services, their autism misunderstood and ignored.
