From June 2018 the New South Wales state government have signed over disability services funding to the federal government as part of the NDIS agreement and will no longer be funding disability advocacy.
It no longer shocks me when I read comments on social media that excuse the murders of disabled people. In fact, these days I actually expect it to happen.
This post carries a trigger warning for discussion about abuse of disabled children and people sympathising with their abusers.
Apparently lots of people think it is ok to feel sorry for people who abuse their Autistic children because there is a “lack of services” available.
Let me be clear: I wholeheartedly disagree.
