Beschreibung

On July 4th 2013, Connor Sparrowhawk, also known as Laughing Boy or LB, was found dead in a specialist NHS unit. Connor, who had autism and epilepsy, had a seizure while in the bath and no member of staff was on hand to stop him from drowning. An entirely preventable death. Sara Ryan presents a frank, sometimes funny and touching account of her son's early life and preventable death and the unfolding #JusticeforLB campaign. This serves as a wake-up call to all of us and asks: can we really claim that we respect the life and dignity of learning disabled people?

Klappentext

A personal account from the mother of Connor Sparrowhawk, a teenager with autism and epilepsy, who died due to neglect while in a specialist NHS unit. After Connor's death, Dr Sara Ryan started the #JusticeforLB campaign, which uncovered a wider failure by the NHS to appropriately care for people with learning difficulties.
