Another Autism Family Targeted by the LA!

Autistic Parent
United Kingdom

Oct 3, 2017 — Dear Supporters,

another autism family has been targeted with wrongful social service interventions for having autistic children:

Particularly notable is that the child at the centre is very likely to have pathological demand avoidance (PDA), as this is a profile our children also have.

I can't say for sure this family was targeted by Brighton & Hove Council, but as you can see from the petition, this family saw a court-appointed psychologist in Brighton, so may be a local family.

Either way, they have 3 autistic children and the parent(s) have been apparently falsely accused of neglect purely due to their ASD-PDA child's behaviours relating to his condition. The LA tried to take their child, which is appalling and wrong on every level. If the other two children were not targeted, clearly there was no genuine 'concern' so serious regarding this one, to do with parenting or neglect or they would all have been taken. Clearly the judge recognised this.

This misuse of public funds and distress to families who have done nothing wrong has to stop!
