Two teachers from Louisiana have been fired for making fun of a severely autistic student.
An audio clip captured the Hope Academy faculty members, who have not been named, apparently mocking and making appropriate comments about Camden Davis, 12.
An audio clip revealed how one teacher talking to Camden as he is attempting to write, saying: “You’re just writing the word.
“What is hard about it?”
When Camden makes a grunting noise in response, the teacher then copies in a mocking tone.
The teacher then adds: “Camden, why don’t you have anything written down?
“That’s why you can’t sit with everyone. Tell your momma that.”
A teaching assistant is then heard to say: “Let’s see what they do with him in f***ing public school.
“He was going to go to Live Oak Middle.
“Uh ah, he wouldn’t make it for a minute.”
Bosses at Hope Academy in Louisiana said two member of staff have been sacked as a result.
Ms Davis told WBRZ news channel: “I just wanted to cry, scream, and do everything I could because it was so bad.
“To think that I had sent my son there every day, and what had happened before, that I didn’t know about.”
