I just re-read the original post and seems my wires were way crossed - the restraining order is against the parents and not the child (doh) so I shall retreat now to lick my mixed up wounds.

^^martha - you're right - maybe I'm being a bleeding heart on this one - if the child wasn't autistic the parents would not have been given any leeway at all - I don't have the answers about how it could be better handled but I would hope, for all concerned (child, parents, parishioners, priest) that it could be resolved with understanding (from all parties) and empathy.

I think we can agree on this.

If he was hitting other parishioners then I understand. I'm autistic myself.

Speaking from a personal point of view, young Adam, how lucky you are, I had to wait until I was 16 until I plucked up the courage to tell my devoted Mother, I couldn't stand the bloody church, & have never set foot in the place since, & I don't miss it 1 little bit!!!!!
