Mother Murders Autistic Son Out Of Desperation- THINGS NEED TO CHANGE!

submitted by maxplayer on 03/23/14 1

After caring for her son 24/7 365 days a year for 15 years and coming to nothing but dead-ends with the medical system that regarded his autism as purely a psych disorder, Dorothy Spourdalakis murdered 15-year-old Alex. She and his aunt, who was also his caregiver, then attempted suicide. How many more lives will be ruined and lost before things change? Autism is a TREATABLE medical condition and our governments and medical establishments must start recognizing it as such! Rest in peace, Alex Spourdalakis. There was an enormous effort by the autism community to save Alex, but in the end his mother obviously just about lost her mind and found herself in a very dark place where murder and suicide seemed her only options. Parents with ASD and other special-needs kids need accessible care-giving and medical support for their children. Please read the following stories. Can you imagine the desperation and frustration a parent feels when they bring their austistic child to the hospital for GI problems and see them being placed in restraints and treated with only psych meds, and are told that 'autism is a mystery' and nothing can be done? Not a single GI test was performed on Alex to find out what was causing him so much pain! This tragedy could have been avoided! www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2013/06/06/3776327.htm www.ageofautism.com/2013/03/alex-spourdalakis-loyola-medical-center-ineptitude.html www.ageofautism.com/2013/03/day-22-autism-agony-at-loyola-u-medical-center-.html www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=2Ue_eqsQ0ZE#! www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/12/alex-spourdalakis-killed_n_3429030.html www.facebook.com/events/619556568069695/?ref=2 www.ageofautism.com/2013/03/weekly-wrap-alex-and-his-mom-autism-and-suicide-and-psychiatrys-hysteria-hangover.html www.ctvnews.ca/canada/parents-of-autistic-adult-son-not-alone-in-their-desperation-say-advocates-1.1261749 www.thestar.com/news/canada/2013/05/01/autism_mothers_brutal_decision_to_leave_19yearold_autistic_son.html www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=KdqaRbrZQlo issuu.com/naturalmothermagazine/docs/naturalmothersummer2013?e=8286424%2F2831724
