Advice MP Lloyd Richardson to families of autistic children: “Move to a developed country”

POSTED: 09/6/13 4:58 PM

St. Maarten – National Alliance MP Dr. Lloyd Richardson advised families that have children with for instance autism or down syndrome “to move to a developed country” where they would have better facilities to see to the needs of their children.

Richardson made his remarks in the Central Committee yesterday morning when he referred to the school in Belvedere that the government has designated as a facility for special needs education.

“What areas of deficit will this school cater to?” the MP asked. “What studies have been done with regards to the biggest vulnerable group so that we can at least say: let’s take care of that group first, before we move on to more specialized groups. Then we may be helping ourselves a great deal.”

Richardson said that this issue “again relates to the free movement of people within the Kingdom. “To people who have problems like autism and Down Syndrome my honest suggestion is: move to a developed country to have these areas better covered. We need to generate income to deal with our own problems.”
