A teacher in Kentucky has been fired after video footage appeared to show her dragging a 9-year-old boy with autism by the wrists, according to a statement the Greenup County School District gave to WSAZ.
According to a Facebook post from the boy’s mother Angel Nelson, her son has limited speech and “has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, and depression.”
In the video, the teacher appears to drag the boy up and down a hallway. According to Nelson, he was “experiencing a meltdown” at the time, “which he sometimes experiences as part of his diagnoses.”
