Oregon Penitentiary Inmate with Autism Dies

The Oregon State Penitentiary may have failed to give services and appropriate supervision to an inmate with autism. Of interest in this article is the fact that over the next few years more children with autism will be joining the adult ranks.

We all know that with the "three strikes you're out" law, poor education for children with autism, lack of funds, and lack of general supports and services in the state of Oregon, this problem will only get worse.
