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 Aspergerís syndrome contained inaccuracies.

Resolution:

The newspaper provided reporterís notes from its interview with the complainant to support its position. However, the editor indicated that he wished to resolve the complainantís concerns to her satisfaction. He offered to publish a follow-up article Ė written by the complainant Ė 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 Aspergerís syndrome: click here for article. The complaint was resolved on this basis.
