An Autistic 10-Year-Old Was Arrested for Hitting a Teacher

In Okeechobee, FL, a 10-year-old kid with autism was arrested for 3rd degree battery. The cops came to his school and wouldn't tell him or his mother what was going on. His mother now claims that he hit his teacher because it's normal behavior for someone with his condition. This arrest was probably inappropriate, and we hope that it serves as an advisory for future cases like this. And this is all coming to light during Autism Awareness Month!
