Autistic student injured after being dragged in school; mom appeals for teacher training

A mother of a child with autism in Kentucky, United States has shared her frustration with the lack of district support for teachers after her son came home from school with cuts and bruises.

Jo Grayson later learned that her son had been dragged down the school hallway by his teacher and the school nurse after he had a “meltdown” and refused to get off the floor.

Grayson was told by Child Protective Services that 11-year-old Thatcher was dragged using the leash normally used to attach him to his service dog.

Grayson shared a Facebook post on Oct. 3, writing, “I definitely want to make it clear that while I am appalled that this could happen and while I do not agree with the decision of the teacher and school nurse that day, I also know that this situation could have been prevented.”
