Please bring my autistic son -Tianze home
My 19 year old son Tianze has autism, a learning disability and sometimes behavior issues. We used to live happily in Fife, Scotland with him, but in May 2014 when Tianze was 16 years old ,he was moved to a hospital in Middlesbrough, England, over 200 miles away from home to have an assessment. It was only supposed to be for maximum 6 week assessment. However three years later , Tianze is still in a mental health unit , We have followed Tianze to Middlesbrough by selling our house in Scotland. Tianze has developed self-harming behaviour since he admitted in hospital in 2014. Tianze has developed bedsores in hospital in 2014 as well,Tianze has been subject to prone restraints lots in hospital as well. Tianze has been transferred from Scotland to Middlesbrough, from Middlesbrough to Prudhoe and from Prudhoe to Morpeth now. Tianze has lots of injuries marks during his in-patient services which never happened at home. Tianze has lost weight during his hospital time which the foods against his cultural needs. however it supposes that he should grow up from 16 to 19 years old.Tianze has been deteriorated in hospital. My son misses home so much. he has written a song called "Back Home" that he sings everyday to me. He used to draw home picture a lots;He used to wake up in earlier morning at 4 AM to cross one day off from the calendar and counting the days back home daily. The Government promised people with autism would be given the best possible care in their communities. Instead Tianze has been severely let down by the institutions who are supposed to be helping us and he needs to be back with his family where he belongs.Please respect basic human rights and respect our unique cultural needs !! Please sign and share to help my autistic son home! many thks!
