    As a disabled person myself I can sympathize, however, if the employer hasn't actually given a reason to let this young man go it is a bit unfair to tarnish their reputation before getting the full story. I am in no way excusing this employer, and avoiding the gentleman's support worker doesn't exactly reflect well on them, but what happened to innocent til proven guilty? I hope that this chap does find another job, with an understanding employer, and that he'll get the independence he's after.
