Disgusting Autism News - Home Alone In Oregon

Some times the news about severely autistic children can be scary such as when, as all too frequently happens, the story is of a child with autism wandering away from home. In Oregon though the story was much different. In Mother convicted of mistreatment for leaving autistic son home alone the Oregonian's Aimee Green reports the story of a Portland Oregon mother who left her 11-year-old severely autistic son alone at home so she could go to a local bar. A fire broke out and the boy was rescued by a fire fighter after a neighbor's 911 call. Fortunately, the boy is now in state custody.
