Mother hugs her autistic son after 15 weeks apart

As lockdown restrictions continue to ease, Julie Grant was finally reunited with her son.

A mother has met her son again after 15 weeks apart during lockdown.

Julie Grant has been able to finally hug her 18-year-old son, Sean Mcginlay, outside the residential school in Glasgow where he lives due to his autism and learning disability.

Julie said: “Sean usually returns home on weekends but due to the lockdown, he wasn’t allowed to come home, just like many others with disabilities who live in care homes.”

She added: “I was just so excited and relieved to hold him and my son made it clear how he felt even without words”.
