Mexican man with Asperger’s syndrome wins court battle

A 25-year-old Mexican with the autistic condition Asperger’s has won the right to make key decisions about his life without parental consent.

Mexican legislation on people with disabilities was drafted with the intention of protecting them, by taking away legal responsibility for their actions, but Mr Adair’s mother says the law is out of date.

“Many children have different levels of disability. Some need more support, some need less. This should be about giving to each one what they need,” Leticia Robles told BBC Mundo earlier this year.
