This is so awful and makes me want to kick the %*&$#@ out of her or just get her fired.

I also read from an AOL article on this as well,
that this young boy goes into 'flash back' at home and quietly says "I'm not special, I'm not special.."
The boy is 5 years old.

He's got Asperger syndrome and the Teacher knew it....

It's so sad.

It's even more upsetting when you discover that the teacher was not fired for this. Simply, it's emotional child abuse. She shouldn't be teaching.

I have a nephew with Asperger's and he is so very precious. Fortunately he's in a school that works WITH that rather than against it. If he came home and reported this sort of treatment, I would be tempted to take things into my own hands!

A life worth living.

This is ridiculous and I am appauled that it does not constitute emotional abuse and I agree that the teacher should have been fired immediately.

But the struggles make me stronger
And the changes make me wise
And happiness has it's own way of takin' its sweet time
