Care home firm fined over death … A CARE home firm has been fined £250,000 for failures that led to the death of a resident. Autistic Jesse Moores, 26, choked on a ham sandwich at The Chine in Winchmore Hill in May 2005. Robinia Care Group ignored pleas from staff to employ more staff, Wood Green crown court heard. It also failed to ensure recommendations from a care home regulator were acted upon.”:http://www.thisislondon.co.uk/standard/article-23678433-details/Care+home+firm+fined+over+death/article.do

GENERAL/HUMAN INTEREST


Fostering: Who cares? …They are currently looking after three teenage boys with autism spectrum disorders. Neither Con nor Ann knew anything about autism before they started fostering but they received specialist training in order to meet the very complex needs of the children they care for. Sixteen-year-old John, for example, is at a similar stage of development to a toddler. He can’t be left unattended as he has no concept of danger and needs 24-hour supervision. He has no vocal skills and the couple are currently teaching him sign language, which they have only just learned themselves. Thirteen-year-old David stays with the couple ten days a month. He has nocturnal epilepsy in addition to autism and can have up to seven seizures a night. Con and Ann monitor him throughout his sleep via CCTV cameras in his bedroom. You feel like nobody else out there could look after them as well as you do and that’s how a lot of parents must feel when their kids are being fostered.”:

“Photographer pledges donations to autism … A photographer from North East England has pledged to donate £5 to The National Autistic Society (NAS) for every 8×12 print she sells for £20.

She has also skydived for her local Tyne and Wear Autistic Society.”:

GIVE LIGHT “Greek Association of Autistic Asperger and HFA Adults

We, the Greek Autistic and Asperger adults, feel we must take matters into our hands and promote
a more accurate and realistic image of what Autism is, and how it affects our daily lives.

Because, unlike the way Autism is presented by the scientific community, Autism is not an illness,
or a condition that can be treated and cured! Autism is a way of life, a way of being, a way of
understanding the world around us. Without Autism, we would not be who we are, but someone else.”:

ART


GLIMPSE – the talents of the autism community

They are painters, sculptors and photographers; poets and storytellers; musicians and creators of amazing video games. They are kids, teens and adults. Last year, a new online publication arose to celebrate the talents of autistic individuals and other developmental disabilities: GLIMPSE, offered by ICDL (The Interdisciplinary Council of Developmental and Learning Disorders). In late 2008, Volume 2 of GLIMPSE was released, and was expanded into a print book and notecards. The works are serious, humourous, deeply personal and illuminating. See it for yourself, share it with others, submit your own/your child’s work for inclusion in Volume 3, to release later this year. Find information and ordering details at www.icdl.com
