Parents of children with learning disabilities can face some unfortunate situations when out and about in public places. Ashley Wright can certainly relate to that, as a man yelled at her autistic 13-year-old son during a trip to the zoo in June 2018. Later that day, however, she hit back at him through an impassioned Facebook post.
A resident of Belleville, Canada, Ashley is the mother of two children named Logan and Brinlee. The former is 13 years old and stands over 6 feet tall, and he also suffers from a number of mental disabilities. According to his mom, the teenager has severe autism, echolalia and global developmental delay.
