Prejudice lingers over disabilities

I AM writing in relation to the article written by Sheena McGinley in the Irish Independent's 'Weekend' magazine (July 24), in which she reviewed the 'soaps'.

I was very disappointed to see her refer to the character of Robert in 'Fair City', not by name, but as "the Robot".

Robert's character suffers from a condition called Asperger's Syndrome, a condition with which my own little boy of four was recently diagnosed.
