 that makes me sick to hear teachers talking to children in that manner. especially a child with disabilities. i have a son with a few disorders not autism, but disabilities that cause behavior problems and to hear teacher aging it on just sicken me.

wow, i cried watching that, i feel so sad for that little boy, that teacher should be hung (and i do mean that). That's crazy that those teachers were in on it to, this outrages me so much, just wow. Kudos to dad for following his instincts, its sad he had to take such drastic measures in the first place!

What annoyed me the most is the fact that the father thought the teacher deserved to be given the chance to apologize! I would have sued like crazy and pressed charges!!!

My DH and I just listened to the entire video.  My husbands response " They would have to meet me at the door with the cops. Heads would roll. The state school board would be notified.  A federal lawsuit would be filed.  The ADA would be made very aware of that crap.  Every teacher and aid in the room would be fired and their teaching license revoked.  We would be the schools worse nightmare."  

I agree with him.  The man in the video said he wasnt going to sue. We would.  All schools care about is money. Hit them where it hurts.  Sue their asses off! And then donate it to Autism Support Groups.  That is what we would do.

This is disgusting! Worst part is they ALL still have jobs teaching in the district! Next worse part is if dad hadn't wired his son most moms here would've thought it's ok to cuff the child during an outburst to protect the shitty teachers that bullied him daily!

Cuffing a child with autism is never okay and it does not solve anything.

Quoting LoriLou75:
