Waitrose criticised for stocking magazine with ‘autism cure’ cover

Waitrose criticised for stocking magazine with ‘autism cure’ cover.

‘I was so shocked when I saw it, it made me stop in my tracks,’ says Sophie Walker.

A woman has criticised Waitrose for stocking a magazine with a cover that reads: “Reversing autism – reigniting your child’s brain”.

Sophie Walker from London, was shopping in her local Waitrose supermarket, when she came across the “Get Well” magazine cover on the newsstand.

Walker, who has a 17-year-old daughter, Grace, with an autism diagnosis, told The Independent: “I was so shocked when I saw it, it made me stop in my tracks.”

She took a photograph of the magazine and shared it on Twitter, with the caption: “What is this absolute crap on the shelves of my local Waitrose? Have you any idea how offensive this is?

“My daughter is well. Her brain is fully ignited – and firing such that she creates and thinks in ways that inspire and astound me daily. Scrap this ableist shit now.”
