Can someone tell me if it's against the law to deny a child transportation because of their behavior, when it is behavior that is directly related to their disability (i.e. autism)? This is happening right now and I just want to know what the deal is. Basically, the aide on the bus is not trained at all and yelps and yells when my student does anything, which (of course) makes it happen more often. So, if he bites her or tries to bite her, she screams, "Oh my god he bit me!" and then runs up the aisle, etc. I do not ride the bus so I don't know the exact details, but I know the demeanor of the aide, which is not helping. At any rate, it's all totally attention seeking - everything he does is for attention. This morning he kicked the windows and she came to tell him to stop, and he didn't stop and then bit her. I mean honestly, just let him kick the windows. He wears a four point D-Clip EZ-ON harness vest on the bus, for obvious reasons. They are having difficulty even getting him harnessed in because the aide is so afraid of him. I have ridden the bus a few times but not in the morning - and the scared aide is in the morning. At any rate, I have written a plan to remedy this, have a token system to put in place, etc. but in the meantime, they called his mom and said she has to drive him to school!!!! (Is this not illegal???) Please advise. I know there's nothing I can do - but I really think it's not right to trouble the parent when it's CLEARLY our fault for not appropriately managing the behaviors of a child with severe autism. Now the aide filed workmans comp saying that he "thrashed" her. Well, he weighs like 50 pounds so I really don't know what's going on. All you have to do is ignore his behaviors and hook him in from behind and you're golden. There are some basic behavior management skills that I am going to try to teach the bus staff, because I know they provide NO training in this area whatsoever. BUT I just find it odd that they're allowed to call and say he's not allowed on the bus for the next four days.
