Parents of autistic children on Sunday converged on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's office to demand the government enact legislation to protect the rights of children with special needs.

According to the parents, children with autism lack access to basic education and later in life encounter difficulties finding adequate employment.

In this respect, The National Society for Autistic Children asked the government to allocate NIS 60 million in the next budget to tackle the issue.
