Living Autism referred our case to Craig, The Operations Director for our region, and he has been with us all the way on a very long and emotionally difficult journey. Through his determined efforts, interventions and advocacy, he found T the right placement and, after six months of isolation in a hospital unit, T was eventually transferred to his new ‘home’ and is making remarkable progress.
T had been experiencing a living hell in the months leading up to his admission to hospital and his family were only one step behind him in that experience. Much of what T had to go through could have been avoided if only people had listened to what we, the family were telling them. Craig at Living Autism DID LISTEN to us and then he acted, offering solid, practical help, as a result, T is now in the best place he can be and is thriving and happy. The challenges remain great, but T is meeting those challenges with the help of the trained and dedicated staff looking after him and he’s now able to achieve his potential, whatever that may be. If it hadn’t been for Living Autism and Craig’s ceaseless help, I think T’s story would have had a very different outcome.
