Kimberly Dawn is working to Cameras In Special Needs Classrooms

Kimberly Dawn

When I had a meeting with some school officials concerning my nearly non-verbal son with autism, I was told that unfortunately there are no videos to see what really happened. I told them that there was a simple solution to that (video surveillance and skype would hardly cost a cent) and of course I got more irrational defensive statements one on top of the other. But what is truly unfortunate, and shameful, isn't the fact that most of our special needs children can't tell us, it is that the school officials aren't willing to fix that problem with a simple solution, instead they fight it, a solution that good daycares use because those children aren't capable of or too young to understand speaking up for themselves also.
