Publication: Birmingham Post

Complaint:

Nadine de Stavonina de Montagnac (known professionally as Rozagy), an artist living in Birmingham, complained that an article about her work as an artist and her diagnosis with Aspergers syndrome contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The newspaper provided reporters notes from its interview with the complainant to support its position. However, the editor indicated that he wished to resolve the complainants concerns to her satisfaction. He offered to publish a follow-up article written by the complainant in which she could emphasise the positive aspects of autism. The newspaper published an article in which the complainant interviewed author Clare Morrall about her new book in which the main character had Aspergers syndrome: click here for article. The complaint was resolved on this basis.

Report: 77
