That's an important point. Even the mentally ill need to obey society's rules and shouldn't assault anyone. I don't like the way this was handled, because the warrant should have already been served, yet I have the feeling this mother would just excuse her son's atrocious actions because of his illness instead of disciplining him to teach him that it is wrong to kick or otherwise assault anyone. Hopefully this experience will teach him that it is NOT OK to hurt others and it is NOT OK to use mental illness as an excuse to get away with it.

that's the same as asking what if he was misdiagnosed and really doesn't have diabetes! Diabetics in critical acidosis may be violent or incoherent, but you don't call the police two months after an outburst at school, them having been schooled at home since and just come in for a test.

Someone diagnosed a kid as diabetic- a pediatrician.
Someone diagnosed this child with autism- a pediatrician.

Good luck on that. So far it does not seem to be working out very well. From the 4% growth as promised. And various other crap.

I don't think so. There are no biological tests for mental disorders. There are serology and urine tests for diabetes. The lad doesn't have diabetes. My 12 year old daughter says the boy has "kick the teacher-itis".

First off this has nothing to fricking do with Trump or Obama so drop that BS already.

Second, John Benjamin Haygood was arrested for felony battery on a school board authority, sounds like it was more than just a simple kick.

Quote:
In Florida, Felony Battery is any intentional and unconsented touching or striking, which results in great bodily harm to another person.

There are no biological tests for Alzheimer ; it's diagnosed by process of elimination.

anyway autism is diagnosed by a physician, not your daughter; smart though she may be.
