People with autism have an average lifespan of 54. Maybe we should get our pensions earlier?

It’s time we focus on the younger generation with learning disabilities - they have every right to live longer and make a life for themselves in the society!

Absolutely but the problem needs context. An economy that impoverishes workers who do not fit its constantly changing demands will all but kill the physically or mentally disabled by its very nature.

Well said! Many of these deaths are heinous crimes, lets call them out for what they are. In any other sector preventable deaths would be a serious crime and treated as such. When ppl with are neglected to death perpetrators pay blood money, done & dusted

We could start by acknowledging people with a learning disability are free & equal citizens of the UK & end institutional care. LD is a life long condition where ppl need support. Ceasing to refer to a learning disabled person as a 'patient' will help to end prejudice.
