Ian Lavery Jnr, 24, cracked a sick joke on Twitter about ten-year-old Harvey and made a crude reference to his mother. His father, Ian Lavery, who is patron of the brain injury charity Headway, said he was ‘appalled’ by his son’s behaviour, but last night said he had ‘no intention of policing’ his children. Last night, Price, 34, blasted the pair and claimed the joke should be treated as a hate crime like racism. The model told The Sun: ‘This makes me sick to my stomach. Not just that someone could be so vile as to say such a thing, but also could think it clever to repeat to the world on Twitter. What kind of father, what kind of MP, is Ian Lavery?
These disgusting comments aimed at Harvey all too often get aimed at other disabled children and the poor souls his father’s charity rightly campaigns for. Harvey was born with septo-optic dysplasia, which causes blindness and growth hormone deficiency and also suffers from Prader-Willi syndrome, which can lead to obesity and diabetes. Ian Lavery Jnr, from Newcastle, reacted angrily with a string of expletives when he was first challenged on Twitter about his comments. I am ashamed that my actions have caused such distress, to my father, especially given how strongly he campaigns for disabled rights.
Mr Lavery, an MP for Wansbeck, initially said he had no intention of policing his children, adding: ‘They have to learn how to behave in the big wide world like I did. He added: ‘Since long before my election to parliament, I have been a constant and committed advocate on behalf of disabled and vulnerable groups in Wansbeck and across the North East. Consequently, I was shocked, appalled and hugely disappointed when a post from my eldest son on twitter was brought to my attention. He is an adult and has to behave and act responsibly.
I have had a full and frank conversation with him and he is in no doubt about my views. My son is full of remorse for his insensitive and thoughtless comments. Harvey has found himself under attack before. Comedian Frankie Boyle was cautioned by Ofcom in 2010 after he made a vile sexual slur about him on a Channel 4 show. In November 2007, Heat magazine gave away a sticker bearing a picture of Harvey next to the words ‘Harvey wants to eat me’. The then editor Mark Frith apologised and said ‘no offence was intended.

Valerie Ann Lozano, from San Antonio, said her son was in PE class at Resnik Middle School on Thursday when another student told the boy he was going to fight him after school. She claims her son told his PE teacher about the threat, and the instructor told the boy ‘Don’t worry, I got you’. But, she wrote on Facebook, the offer of help never materialized and her son was beaten bloody later the same day. Valerie Ann Lozano, from San Antonio, said her son was threatened by another student in P. Ms Lozano said the offer of help never materialized and her son was beaten bloody later the same day. Ms Lozano told local media that her son suffers from disabilities, has anxiety and depression, and since the attack has been unable to sleep. Gruesome pictures posted to Facebook by Ms Lozano shows what she says is the aftermath of the brawl.
The images, uploaded on Tuesday, show a large amount of blood spattered across the floor. In one of the images her son can be seen sitting down on the ground with no shoes on while medics tend to him. There also appears to be a police officer taking notes next to the boy. Ms Lozano said that, adding further insult to injury, she had a meeting with the school principal the following day which the coach was supposed to attend.
But despite being summoned to the office the teacher was a no-show, she says. Ms Lozano said she has also been calling school district officials but they have not been returning her calls. I want this to go viral so something can be done. Please share this post,’ she wrote. Since then the images have been shared more than 200,000 times and were picked up by local news station KSAT.

Rita Ora will be raising temperatures in Henley, Lionel Richie promises a mean time in Greenwich and Chris Evans revs up at Carfest. This guest post is written by a mom, Dana Linett-Silber, I met soon after we found out that Max had a stroke. Dana’s son, Jack, also had a stroke at birth. He was five years older than Max. Dana was a big source of comfort to me back then.
Over the years, we’ve stayed in touch. And then, I found out she’d made a tremendous decision. There’s a neighbor in our building who will no longer acknowledge us. She used to be friendly, but now she won’t say hello or even make eye contact. Once she let the elevator door close in my face after I asked her nicely to hold it.
Her hostility started in the summer of 2008, right around the time we sent our then 10-year-old son, Jack, to a group home. But I don’t care — he’ll be 16-years-old soon and I have no regrets. In fact, there are not many things I’m certain of, but one thing I know for sure is that we did what was best for all of us, and that includes Jack. Because he can’t talk or feed himself and is physically challenged, Jack needs assistance with every aspect of daily living. When Jack lived at home, we depended on aides seven days a week and sometimes for overnight shifts. Some of the aides were nice to him, but not to me.
Some were nice to me, but not so great with him. I was friendly with a few, others gave me the creeps. Dealing with them was difficult in all the ways that managing employees can be and more, but I was desperate to keep the rotation going. Sometimes there were fights between the aides and me over scheduling. One weekend, I suspected that two day aides were trying to sabotage the night aide by leaving their shifts without having properly cared for Jack, in hopes that the night aide would be overwhelmed and quit over his agitated, deficient state. Our home had become a dysfunctional workplace, with all the ugly cutthroat competitiveness and politics that go along with it.
Yet this particular aide was extremely punctual and reliable, and it seemed too risky to give that up. In fact, the thought of trying to get through even one day without help scared the hell out of me. Sometimes I would feel bad that Jack was in his pajamas in bed at 6 o’clock when other boys his age were still active. But the aide had spent hours feeding and bathing him and was exhausted and ready to go home. I know of a family who can’t bring themselves to place their autistic 22-year-old son in a group home.
He lives in a big house with his parents, attending a day program and languishing alone in the backyard, swinging on a swing or ripping up leaves. I heard his mother adds vodka to her morning orange juice and doesn’t stop drinking till bedtime. Now Jack lives in a brownstone on a quiet block with a group of other boys his age. There are several counselors there who work as a team to provide for his basic needs. They’re young and strong and never seem tired. When Jack lived with us, his aides used to wheel him around in a big stroller. Now, his counselors prefer to hold his hand and walk with him everywhere, improving his strength and balance every day.
His home also has a nurse, social worker, den mother and manager. He is never alone, and neither are his caretakers. I never worry that his needs aren’t being met. In fact, I know his needs are being exceeded in ways they never could be when he lived with us. Whenever Jack is off from school, the team takes him and the other boys on a trip to an amusement park, concert or movie. Twice a year we hire an aide and take him on a special family vacation so we can all be together and his brother and sister can bond with him. They were young when he lived at home and probably don’t remember much, but I know they’ll remember the good times we have with him now.

Granted, not all group homes may be as great as the one we found. But because Jack will never be able to live alone or care for himself, and we know that one day my husband and I will be old—and, eventually, dead—putting him in one was simply inevitable. It’s pretty much impossible to have complete peace of mind about your children’s futures but ironically I do have it with him. I’m so grateful he’ll be able to live where he is with his housemates for the rest of his life. And because we had this opportunity and made the decision early on, we all gained so much–Jack included.
The hostility is completely uncalled for. These people don’t live in your shoes, they don’t know anything. And if that is still continuing after 6 years, well those people must not be very mature. I am glad that Jack and all of you are happy, that is what it boils down to. I also place my now 18 year old son in a residential school at the age of 10. He has flourished in a residential setting for many of the same reasons you have mentioned in your article. I visit him most weekends and his brother comes up about once every 6 weeks.
He will have a much easier transition to adult placement because he has learned to excel in this setting. How did you manage to get him into a place? My son is 12 and I cant find a place nor would i be able to pay for it even if i found it! I have many things to say about this, being in a similar situation.
But I am as yet unable to write them, even though it has been three years. For now, I feel your pain my friend! Jack’s happy and that’s what’s important. If he could walk why was he in a wheelchair all day?

He must miss his mother terribly. I hate to be so judgmental but this makes me so sad. Life is not perfect and no one needs pity from anyone else. This author made the best choice for her son and her family and continues to make the best choices for her family. I am sad for people when no options exist and nothing is working, but this story gives me HOPE ! That great places exist and there are options.
Thank you for sharing your story and how you and Your family make it work ! I have had friends with children with various special needs. My younger brother is severely autistic. My parents fought for several different placements for him in the schools but it was never enough. They couldn’t give him what he needed, and he was miserable, and we were miserable. When he was 9 they sent him to a residential school for children with autism. Deb, this is exactly my situation now with my 12 year old son.
The only person I feel badly for is your neighbor. She must live in a very small world. Thank you for sharing your perspective! I know it will help a lot of people. No two kids are the same and especially no two disabled or ASD kids are the same either. When he got to where he could walk, but had no orientation, he was a danger to Cindy and Nichole who were both multi-handicapped.
Depression and Suicide
This is an amazingly sad story. I have three children with disabilities. No one understands the anguish or the lack of resources unless they are in the same situation. I find myself being jealous of people who only have one disabled child. My heart breaks for Dana and her son. Dana institutionalized her child rather than HORRORS deal with managing in-home staff to keep her son at home!
The fact that Dana is PROUD of removing her son from the institution once or twice per year to “bond” with his siblings? I’m appalled that Dana has CHOSEN to teach her kids that “appropriate” care for a disabled sibling is NOT AT HOME and that spending one or two weeks a year with that same sibling is “enough”. Every family has to make their own decision based on their own circumstances. Dana loves Jack so much she was willing to make a difficult decision to give him the best care- that’s huge. Kate – That is over the top judgmental. I am very glad you are perfect and in a place to judge others. How the hell do you know whas happening for her?
