Arguments

Fri 8 Jun 2018 11:24am

Hello my son is 19 he has Aspergers. He starts arguments with me I'm his mum. Then always says I started them when I didn't but he really believes this ! He calls me some disgusting names and just keeps ranting and ranting even though you ask him to go away or I shut the door hoping he will go away but he just keeps going. but the thing that really worrys me is that he really believes it's all me when it's not . Does anybody else experience this please, loun900

hyde park's winter wonderland has to pay jonah specter £25,000 for discrimination

Mon 23 Apr 2018 9:51am

...A man with Asperger's Syndrome has been awarded £25,000 in damages after being refused entry to a ride at Hyde Park's Winter Wonderland.  

Jonah Specter, 34, is believed to be the first person with a form of autism to successfully win a discrimination payout against an entertainment venue. 

When he tried to get on the ferris wheel last year he was told he did not have the right disabled access tickets and 'didn't even look disabled.'

alfred wainwright - famous walker - may have autism

Mon 27 Nov 2017 12:40pm

...The claim is made by Richard Else, a Bafta-winning film maker who coaxed Wainwright on to television in the 1980s and became so close to him in his later years that they were often mistaken for father and son.
