Another flew over the cuckoo's nest

MagazineOctober 2000 (Vol. 11 Issue 7)Another flew over the cuckoo's nest

I am the mother of an autistic young man who has been turned from a fairly able autistic person into a completely disabled person by a professor of psychiatry who prescibed psychiatric drugs for him while he stayed at a residential home for the mentally handicapped

I am the mother of an autistic young man who has been turned from a fairly able autistic person into a completely disabled person by a professor of psychiatry who prescibed psychiatric drugs for him while he stayed at a residential home for the mentally handicapped. Of course, the professionals deny that the drugs caused these symptoms and say it is all due to his autism.

I empathise with the 'Smiths' and find the professionals dictatorial and conformist, and best avoided whenever possible. Mrs P.A. Kehela, London.....

WDDTY replies: This is a sampling of the dozens of letters we've received from our readers. Thanks to your generous donations, we've now amassed lb1000 for the Smiths' fighting fund.

We're pleased to report that one of the nation's top family law solicitors (sympathetic to these types of injustices) has taken on the Smiths. Although they have received legal aid, it may not pay all their bills. Our fighting fund will make up the difference. We'll donate any surplus to the Smiths to help them start their new life (or sue Social Services).

Thanks for your generosity, which WDDTY will add to with its own donation.
