How many young people were received into HMYOI Glen Parva, for each month between January 2009 and June 2011, who were identified with an ASD?

What policies does HMYOI Glen Parva have for supporting the needs of young people identified with ASD? Please issue us with a copy of any relevant policies.

Can they tell me WHY the Coventry County Courts and the Coventry NHS REFUSE Autism/Aspergers assessments of Girls, even when the Parent has PROOF of Autism within the Family ?. Also WHY do the <<West Midlands Police>> ignore it when they Self-harm whilst they are in Police Custody, accused of an offence when NO-ONE has made a complaint.
