Family Facing Deportation From Australia Because Of Son’s CP


I agree with you.

This is disgraceful that residency can be judged on the disability of a child and the related cost to Australia.

Yes, this is how it is in Australia today.

This is blatant disability discrimination, which I  would not have thought possible in such a progressive country as Australia. For this means it does not matter, what people have been doing in Australia, working there and producing wealth, not just for themselves, but also Australia, for when they have children and if they dared to have a child with disabilities, this could affect the decision whether they could stay in Australia. It shows that these parents have not been really valued by Australia, perhaps these parents should be able to claim from Australia a cost related to their time in Australia and the benefit Australia has had from them.

This is not what should be expected from, a so called, civilised country, as Australia, appears, to take what they want and then discard, when they feel there will be additional costs to Australia.

For this is totally disgraceful and Australia should be ashamed of themselves. This is a form of abuse, disability abuse.

Same Difference

I can’t describe how sad and angry I am after reading this. I have Cerebral Palsy and am a British Asian. I have grown up in the UK. I can’t imagine anything like this happening here. The fact that this child was actually born in Australia just makes the situation 1000 times worse in my eyes.

Australia’s disability discrimination commissioner has called on the immigration minister, Alex Hawke, to intervene “in a humane way” in a case in which a family is facing deportation because their six-year-old son has a disability.

On Tuesday night Ben Gauntlett was quizzed at Senate estimates about the plight of Australian-born Kayaan Katyal, and his parents, Varun and Priyanka, who are facing deportation after being rejected for permanent residency last month.

The ABC, which revealed the case on Sunday, reported that the family had been told in a rejection letter that Kayaan would cost…

What is Cerebral Palsy? | Umove Physio | Stay Fit!


Cerebral Palsy is a gathering of scatters that influence adjusts, development, and muscle tone. “Cerebral” means the turmoil is identified with the mind, and “paralysis” alludes to the shortcoming or a muscle issue.

CP begins in the territory of the cerebrum that controls the capacity to move muscles. Cerebral paralysis can happen when that piece of the cerebrum doesn’t create as it should, or when it is harmed appropriate around the season of birth or ahead of schedule in life.

The vast majority with cerebral paralysis are conceived with it. That is called “innate” CP. Yet, it can likewise begin after birth, in which case it’s called “gained” CP.

Individuals with cerebral paralysis can have gentle issues with muscle control, or it could be severe to the point that they can’t walk. A few people with CP experience issues talking. Others have scholarly incapacities, while many have typical knowledge.

Safeguarding: An established process, not a civil liberties dilemma


With all the existing checks and balances abusive practices still continue to occur so no one should ever consider to reduce the existing checks and balances. If there are to be changes made then these changes should strengthen these, not make them weaker.

Those persons who are deemed to be vulnerable need the total protection of extensive Safeguarding Procedures and Practices forever and a day.

Mind the care training

I first published this article 7 years ago. It’s unfortunate that so many people still fail to understand the need for robust Safeguarding processes, especially when the same people often express mock outrage at child abuse cases that the Safeguarding system attempts (& often manages) to prevent.

Child and ​Adult Protection have become increasing concerns over recent years. Several high profile incidents involving abuse of vulnerable people have prompted UK society to look again at the systems we have in place to safeguard those who need it most.

Social media currently features ill-informed and often frankly unconvincing outrage on behalf of Rachel Booth, a school dinner lady who attended a rally organised by Tommy Robinson (EDL founder & notorious Islamaphobe).

Mrs Booth has been suspended from her job as a result of her attendance at the far right rally. She has broken no law and is not being charged with…

Scope's Blog

March is Cerebral Palsy Awareness Month. Scope helpline manager Veronica Lynch answers the most common questions she is asked about cerebral palsy, particularly the causes and effects of this condition.

Cerebral palsy is a neurological condition in which parts of the immature (up to age of 5 or 6 years) brain is injured or impaired. This injury generally affects muscles and balance and can result in a physical and/or sensory impairment. Cerebral palsy is the most common childhood disability affecting about one in 400 live births.

What are cerebral palsy symptoms?

The effects of cerebral palsy can range from extremely mild to profound with additional sensory or learning impairments. The condition is individual so no two people will be affected in the same way.

It’s impossible to give a list of symptoms as each person will be different. Doctors will generally look at any issues during pregnancy or at the…
