After Tony Topping appeared on ITV This Morning he was contacted by a lady. This is her story of how a drug perscribed to her gave her son autism, the drug is called  Sodium Valporate.

 Around 10% of children exposed to sodium valproate will have a major congenital malformation, 12%  likely to be diagnosed with a neurodevelopmental disorder (including autistic spectrum disorder, attention-hyperactivity disorder or dyspraxia) as many as 39% of children will require support in school.

"20,000 Plus UK Child Abnormalities, Clef Palate, Spina Bifida, Autism and Fetal Valporate Syndrome ignored, a cover up that is the New Thalidomide, 100's of families in the UK are trying to get a voice and there are 1000's of families that don't know why their children have the abnormalities they do! BBC Wales covered the story. This story has never made national TV. This is why I have come to you.
