Professor Sheila Riddell was invited to write an op-ed piece on ASn support for The Herald on the 15th January 2019.

Riddell raised concerns over a year-on-year reduction since 2011 in the number of co-ordinated support plans (CSPs) opened despite of the promise by the Scottish Government in 2004 that there would be no decline in the proportion of children receiving them.
