Katie Price has made the difficult decision to place her 18-year-old son Harvey into a full-time college residency care facility. Katie has been open in the press about her son’s autism diagnosis.

“It breaks my heart,” Katie Price told The Sun. “I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him.”

Katie Price Opens Up About Autistic Son’s Care

“You hear about people with autism being arrested and when they’re restrained they go mad and get sectioned,” she added. “That’s why I want to find the right college for him so if there’s ever a case where he kicks off, I’m involved.”

Obviously proud of her son, Katie shared that he “overcomes mountains and obstacles every day that other people take for granted.”

“It’s so upsetting to think I won’t see him every day, but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don’t want him to think I’m just getting rid of him,” Price said. “This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialize with people other than me.”

“I’m hoping he will make friends so he can socialize at the weekends, but if he has no plans, then he can come home whenever he wants,” said Katie. “He’s meant to start this September but with lockdown I don’t know if he will.”
