Well I see there are at least three people that have no idea what works and doesn't work with this group of individuals. Thanks for your disagrees, you are part of the problem not part of the solution.

oldgran, Maybe I'm missing something subliminal that you can see and I can't, but I don't see anything that suggests a separate facility. The article mentions putting a cop(s) in the school, but doesn't say who would pay for it. I would suggest Beacon Light, but lots of luck trying to get them to do it. they're one of those charities you know.

Anyone who is in this field and has any amount of progressive thought or knowledge of how services have evolved over the years would know that the prescription put in place by the Warren County School District would result in the disaster that seems to be occuring. Segregation is actually the worst possible strategy. Let's put 10 autistic kids in the same room or building. What kind of behavior do they see and observe to model? That of 9 other autistic kids. So why should anybody be surprised that the School District is getting this result. Under this plan the School District will graduate them to the Autistic Adult Day Program, have them live in the Autistic group home then onto the the Autistic unit of the nursing home, and finally to the autistic section of the cemetary.

Disruptive people are not "entitled" to being coddled, or being treated in the same fashion as non-disruptive people. Violent or aggressive behavior requires segregation.

But would one first need to get access to attend one of their closed door meetings?

The headline and the gist of the article suggest that a separate school/facility should be furnished for special needs. I'm sure the school board would welcome any reasonable ideas you have that could make this happen.
