  • Caught on camera Kentucky teacher seen dragging autistic boy

She also said she wanted more training for teachers who work with children with disabilities, as well as those who do not. But did not identify Abrams or her position. Abrams is set to appear in court Wednesday.

Nelson and her family just moved to Wurtland, Kentucky in October. Specifics of what that means were unclear.

The video showed the boy being dragged past a group of students waiting outside a classroom. "All GCSD staff are trained to prevent incidents of restraint".

The video showed Abrams dragging the boy, who Nelson said has been diagnosed with autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety, and depression, by the wrist through the school hallways.

The child's mother, Angel Nelson, told ABC affiliate WCHS that she was "horrified" when she first learned that her son, who has autism among other special needs, was dragged by a teacher through his school. "In addition, his speech is also limited". An IEP is an individualized education program created for special education students.

Nelson said her son sustained injuries to his wrist during the dragging incident and has to go through "more intense occupational therapy to regain his skills that took so long to grasp". At one point, Abrams can be seen stopping and attempting to pull Alan to his feet before continuing to drag him while he is on his knees into another classroom.

Angel Nelson added to the station that the video "broke my heart. and I saw all of his new friends and classmates along the wall watching him being dragged down the hallway".

"According to my son, she threw him hard down onto a chair".

"My son deserves justice", wrote Nelson on Facebook. "He's safe, '" Alan's stepfather Calep Nelson said.

The school district has not released the teacher's name or title.

"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.

In a statement to WSAZ, Greenup County Schools Superintendent Sherry Horsley said: "The Greenup County School District prioritizes the safety of our students". "The parent was contacted immediately and the student was assessed by the school nurse and referred for outside medical evaluation".

The Greenup County School District announced on Monday that Abrams has been fired.

The superintendent also followed protocol and reported the incident to the Kentucky Education Professional Standards Board which determines whether or not a teacher keeps their teaching certificate, the statement said. Each school has a specially trained team to address immediate issues, and the school has teachers specially trained to address autism-related behaviors.

"It is my belief that all schools should be required to have cameras in place (that cannot be turned to a corner) in order to protect students and teachers", the mother added.

The stepfather says losing her job isn't enough. Yesterday, district officials confirmed the teacher in question had been "removed from the school".

"What else has she (the teacher) done that we don't know about?" "Do you want to walk", the teacher is heard asking the child in the clip.
