Autistic girl, 17, moved 28 times - A TEENAGE girl was moved to 28 care homes before being diagnosed with a form of autism, a court heard. The 17-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, lashed-out when she was told she would be moved, only days since her previous move. The girl admitted damaging a PlayStation and two walls when she appeared at Ely Youth Court. Ben Peers, mitigating, said: "She was told she would be moved back to a previous care home where there had been trouble with boys at the home. "That she had to go back was, perhaps, the last straw for her." The girl was recently diagnosed with semanticpragmatic disorder, which leads to difficulties understanding the meaning of what other people say and understanding how to use speech appropriately. Effective.orgmunication and the understanding of instructions are impaired. - UK

PERSPECTIVE: Caged children case causes state to review oversight - The case of special needs children being kept in cages by their adoptive parents has prompted a discussion about the way Ohio oversees the children in its care. The director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services says the state is investigating whether the system worked properly when eleven children ages one to 14 with conditions such as HIV and autism were placed with Michael and Sharen Gravelle of Wakeman.

Siblings not surprised about cage charges - When Jesse and Jenna Gravelle heard the stories about a couple forcing their 11 adopted children to sleep in cages, they weren't surprised to hear their father and stepmother's names. What shocked them, Jesse Gravelle said, was that adoption agencies would place children in Michael and Sheron Gravelle's custody. "My dad and stepmother were pretty much cruel and neglectful," Jesse Gravelle, now 32, said Friday. "There were no cages," his sister Jenna Gravelle, 31, said in a separate interview, but "both my brother and I felt like prisoners. We had to fend for ourselves." The siblings described teenage years spent working long hours to pay for food and rent at their father's home, and said Jenna as a sixth-grader was temporarily removed from the home by social services over allegations that their father inappropriately touched her.

Autism Society of America Blasts Ohio Family; Authorities Placing ... "..."ASA is well aware of the difficulties families of individuals with autism face with chronic and dangerous wandering. As with Alzheimer's disease, persons with autism may wander into danger, often with tragic results," said ASA president & CEO Lee Grossman. "To address the issue, parents sometimes sleep in shifts; may resort to locks, bars and electronic warning systems; and are even reported for or accused of neglect, resulting in their children being placed in temporary foster care while they scramble to defend their actions in court. Yet, certainly no one could ever suggest that a child or adult be kept in a wooden cage to sleep in. Not for any reason or under any circumstances," he concluded. Law enforcement and criminal justice professionals will face an extremely difficult job as they sort through the facts of this latest tragedy. Their best resources, when it.orges to the children in question, will be objective disability advocacy groups. In the case of autism, ASA, with the support of its state and local affiliates, is here to provide the necessary information and resources."

HE WAS AN AUTISTIC GENIUS .. SHE WAS A BISEXUAL FANTASIST. THE WEB BROUGHT THEM TOGETHER..THE WEB HELPED THEM FIND DEATH - They were lonely strangers living hundreds of miles apart until they met to die in Britain's first internet suicide pact. Fiercely intelligent finance officer Chris Aston, 25, was a PhD student from a settled middle-class home diagnosed as a child with Asperger's Syndrome, a form of autism. He overdosed four years ago. Mentally unstable Maria Williams, 42, was a tormented bisexual living in a graffiti- covered tower block. She lied to her friends about contracting leukaemia and had previously tried to shoot herself in the head, overdose and slash her wrists. In a different world they would never have met to feed each other's anxieties. They may even have survived their crises. Instead, they became hooked on sickening suicide websites that advised them how to die and finally linked them in death. They were found dead from carbon monoxide poisoning in a BMW in a South London car park. Ashes of barbecue coal littered the passenger footwell.By Daniel Boffey And Victoria Bone
