I hear a lot about wanting special needs kids to be accepted, and I agree.
what I don't agree with is pushing the issue so much that everyone suffers.
My much younger brother had a special needs girl in his class who one day got nude and started masturbating right in class. most if not all of her day was spent feeding her cookies and the like so that she would stay quiet- otherwise she would scream.
when the kids tried to have a play, she would run around the room screaming.
yet when her brother had a special awards banquet, his sister was ironically not there.
It all seemed to me to be a matter of forcing a situation, I don't see how it promoted acceptance. If anything the other students resented the situation.
I don't see how feeding a child cookies to keep her quiet did her any good. seemed like something the parents pushed for to make them feel better.
that's off my chest-

Next question overall
Why does this keep happening? How can I make it stop?
