Autism Speaks Challenging Behaviors Tool Kit. Sometimes the difficulties of autism can lead to behaviors that are quite challenging to understand and address. The guiding principle used in developing this kit is that each individual with autism and their family should feel safe and supported, and live a healthy life filled with purpose, dignity, choices and happiness.
Gary S. Mayerson, Founding Attorney, Mayerson and Associates, answers questions about school crisis situations involving people with autism spectrum disorder.
Questions answered include: 1) What is a school's immediate responsibility if a crisis happens in school? 2) What about after the crisis? 3) Can my child get kicked out of school for this kind of behavior? 4) What should I do if my child does get kicked out of school? 5) What is a manifestation hearing? 6) What is a school's responsibility if the crisis happens at home? 7) If my school isn't helping or can't help with the situation, what should I do?
