Teacher Charged With Assault For Dragging Autistic Boy in School Hallways

Teacher Charged With Assault For Dragging Autistic Boy in School Hallways

The incident, which took place in October, resulted in Nelson pulling her son out of Wurtland Elementary and placing him in another school in the district, she told The Post. The teachers aide no longer works for the district, although officials have not provided specifics.

"I was horrified when I saw it", the boy's mother, Angel Nelson, told the station. "No", he replied, while apparently being dragged along the school hallway in front of other kids.

She says her son has been diagnosed with "autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, and depression", and that he also has limited speech.

Last year, an OH teacher was sacked after she was photographed dragging a student by the arm down a school hallway.

"The Greenup County School District prioritizes the safety of our students".

Brooks said there is no magic wand to prevent the recent situations, but he supports staff training that ensures emotional and physical safety at schools. "The parent was contacted immediately and the student was assessed by the school nurse and referred for outside medical evaluation".

"It is my belief that all schools should be required to have cameras in place in order to protect students and teachers", Nelson wrote.

She is expected to be charged with fourth-degree assault.

News outlets report court records say Abrams is set to appear in court Wednesday. Nelson told CNN affiliate WSAZ that a doctor diagnosed her son with sprains in both wrists, as well as swelling and bruising in one wrist that worsened in the days following.

In surveillance footage, shared by the boy's mother on Facebook Sunday, a woman is seen dragging the child on his back and knees through the school's hallways.

Then she said Abrams started dragging him by the wrist from the classroom and down the hallway.

"I think she should possibly face the inside of a jail", Calep Nelson told WSAZ-TV.

Superintendent Sherry Horsley told WSAZ-TV on Monday that the incident was reported to police, Child Protective Services and the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board. The EPSB determines whether or not a teacher keeps their teaching certificate.

"I'm not surprised", Heskins said about the four incidents, "Restraint is an intervention that is much misused across the state".

But the victim's mother said more could be done to stop similar cases in the future.

Angel Nelson added to ABC News she wants more cameras in schools and that the camera in the room where Alan was ultimately taken did not show what happened in that room.

Nelson said that when she first met with Abrams at their initial IEP (Individualized Education Program) meeting upon enrolling her son at Wurtland, Abrams assured her and her husband that she had years of experience and that her son was in good hands.

"The fact that my son is not able to fully verbalize what he went through means that we must fight that much harder for all kids, but especially the kids who can not speak for themselves", the upset mother wrote on Facebook.

The video of the incident, which occurred October 24, shows Abrams dragging the student by both arms.
