Re­gard­ing the Kelly Vin­cent story (Kelly’s he­roes 25/9/10). My son Thomas was born on the brink of death. The di­ag­no­sis was dev­as­tat­ing: cere­bral palsy, spas­tic quadriple­gia, brain dam­age, epilepsy and re­nal fail­ure. Yet he was so beau­ti­ful. Af­ter months of in­ten­sive care and painful treat­ments, he was fi­nally dis­charged. “Good­bye, good luck”. That was it? Oh my God, where to from here? There is no doubt that dis­abil­ity ser­vices in South Aus­tralia are in cri­sis. The lack of pro­vi­sion of ser­vices and lack of trans­parency is an ou­trage.
