A Primary teacher has been fired after a video was made public in which dragged through the corridors of the school to a 9-year-old boy with autism. The images were made public by the minor's mother last Sunday to denounce the complicated situation his son is living and the difficulties he faces in his day-to-day life. As described, the events occurred on October 24, 2018. "My 9-year-old son has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, post-traumatic stress, anxiety and depression, and his ability to speak is also limited." Angel indicates that the minor's teacher, Mrs. Abrams, "grabbed my son by the wrist and folded it back while he was in a crisis." After pulling him from the chair, he grabbed him by the wrist and dragged him down the hallway. one class to another, as seen in the images of the school. " The classroom camera had recently been moved, so there are no images of what happened in the classroom, as Angel complains.
According to the child's description, "she threw him against a chair." "Beyond this, we will never really know what happened behind that closed door due to the limitations of my son's speech. This incident was violent enough to not only hurt my son, but also to break his shoes. All this took place in front of several of the classmates. On this same day, I took him to the emergency room immediately, "he said.
There, they made several x-rays on the wrist and coccyx. The doctor diagnosed a possible fracture of the left wrist and decided to make a resonance, which ruled out the break but confirmed a sprain in one of the wrists. In the following days, the muchecas became inflamed and several bruises appeared. In addition, this aggression caused a regression in his fine motor skills, which impaired his writing or acts as everyday as fastening his pants or shoe laces. Angel added that he will have to undergo therapy to recover the skills that cost him so much work, besides that everything that happened has emotionally traumatized him.
The incident occurred because the teacher pressured the child to keep working, when the child needed a break. The teacher's insistence triggered the crisis of Alan, name of the victim, and the inexplicable and condemnable reaction of the teacher, who mistreated him and humiliated him in front of all his classmates.
As soon as he became aware of the images, the Greenup County School District decided to dismiss the teacher. That happened last Monday, almost three months after the attack.
Nelson said his son had a fit after a teacher told him to "keep working," or to do more work, when he needed to take a break.
