Family Fights to Bring Autistic Girl to Australia

A British family with an 12-year-old autistic daughter is desperate to move to Australia after doctors and specialists said her condition would improve in the country. 

Niamh Pebbles Scott, who is also deaf, has spent more than one year in Australia over eight separate holidays to visit her two brothers and grandmother, who live in Queensland. On each trip, according to specialists and her family, Niamh's condition "hugely" improves due to the family support she receives and the outdoors-based lifestyle.

Her father Adrian Scott has tried over the past two years to get visas for the rest of the family to move to Australia, but both the initial application and an appeal have been denied solely because Niamh fails to meet the health requirement.
