They seem to let so many people down and don’t practice what they preach in their campaigns etc and don’t accept any kind of challenge. Who are they even accountable to?

I would concur. One of the most shocking conversations i had with them was regarding Autism and Aspergers employment and whether there was any positive discrimination within the NAS supply chains to empower folks with ASD to provide services if they were able to provide comparable or superior outcomes. I was passed around a bit and it turned out there wasn't and they weren't even open to the idea of creating provision to do so.

What i am observing is that the whole ASD support thing is a money making scheme for NTs without a true strategy of making positive impacts on the lives of people who actually endure this 'thing', sure a select group are helped but these are, it seems to me, to be kinda sock puppets to give the facade of giving a f**k.
