Justice for Laughing Boy: Connor Sparrowhawk - A Death by Indifference (Paperback)

£12.99
Despatched in 2 business days.

Synopsis

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?

Dr Sara Ryan is a social scientist at the University of Oxford, specialising in autism and learning disabilities. Her blog, 'My Daft Life', started before Connor's death, and continues to document the events that followed https://mydaftlife.com.

Sara Ryan Page’s son Connor drowned in a bath in a care home at the age of eighteen due to negligence. Ryan Page has written a detailed account of the mistakes made and the cover-ups that followed. In the process she has unearthed evidence of an unacceptably high incidence of deaths occurring to people with learning disabilities within the Southern Health care system.
