“Bethany’s mum visited today to find her with hundreds of burst vessels around her face and eyes.”
Beth has been exposed to a known trigger, (relentlessly and for hours I suspect), seemingly with no strategies to prevent the impact of the trigger becoming harmful. As a result of experiencing unmanageable stress, she became distressed and used her clothes as ligatures. The bruising sounds like petechial haemorrhage to me.
No one told her parents that she had to be wrestled to the ground, stripped naked and dressed in ‘safety clothing’:
How can that be? How can a child put their lives in such peril and their parents NOT be notified?
Did she receive any medical attention? Was she medically assessed or was she only tackled to the ground, stripped naked injected with sedatives?
Is that really all the ‘care‘ that can be managed for £13,000 per week of taxpayers money?
Being in this suit sounds horrific, and since they leave it on for days, I can’t help but think they are using it as a punishment. Do they really think this will deter her from being autistic and distressed in future and ‘learn to behave differently?’
I can’t help but wonder if the staff at St Andrew’s lack the education they deserve to such a mind-boggling degree?
