Autistic children's parents and school districtantipathy

Feeling left behind: One mother of an Autistic child, numerous school districts, and the strong antipathy between them.

Their Chief Complaints:
• Refusal to Follow IEP
• Unprofessional Conduct
• Unqualified Teachers
• Unacceptable Placements
• Refusal to Send Home Work
• No Child Left Behind Left Their Child Far Behind

Parents shouldn’t have to fight this hard for a fundamental right of their child. Our children being conferred an education that befits their cognitive abilities is crucial to this countries growth, to any countries growth. Look at the prevalence numbers—they’re higher than we ever dreamed. One day all those “numbers” will be autistic adults, then what do we do? I don’t know what the resolution will be concerning the schools; however I am certain it’ll start with parents like you speaking out against the school systems as a whole, loudly making it known that we won’t stand for this any longer. Even if you homeschool your child, you have a voice: we all have a voice, use them!
After all, you know what they say about parents of autistic children: If the school officials don’t clinch up when they see you coming than you’re doing something wrong.
