Should Negative Behavior Put A Child With Autism In Jail

Today I heard a story of a school age autistic child handcuffed and carted off to jail for kicking, biting and threatening to kill his assistant teacher. The reason behind the behavior is not known. His mom was not notified about the incident. Instead, the police was called to take him off to jail.

I am asking you to read this article and start a discussion with your friends, family, teachers, and community school boards.
