Re: Teacher Bullying Autistic Son
My 3rd (of 4) sons has Asperger's.
The word that comes to mind for most of the teacher's behavior is "hideous". He's had 2 teachers in 8 years that have actually 'gotten it'.....and I'm convinced it's not because of any specialized training, it's because they were genuine, sincere humans who understood their ability to positively impact lives. Especially lives that aren't given too much value because they can't learn in the same manner as the rest of their students.
Kudos to the dad for not only recording the teacher....but for not walking in and punching this idiot in the face. How he still has a job is good evidence that there is something terribly wrong in our school systems. Tenure over horrific treatment of a student. Right.
