Controversy Erupts After Father Secretly Tapes Teachers Verbally Abusing Autistic Son [VIDEO]

Teacher verbally abuses autistic boy

Confused by reports that his autistic son had suddenly become violent at school, New Jersey dad Stuart Chaifetz made the child wear a recording device in an attempt get to the bottom of things. Shockingly, he discovered that a teacher and a teacher’s aide were verbally abusing learning-disabled children at Horace Mann Elementary School in the town of Cherry Hill.

According to Chaifetz, his son, Akian, had never been violent before and he had difficulty understanding why the 10-year-old had suddenly begun lashing out. So, he wired the boy and captured six-and-a-half hours of audio.

When Chaifetz listened to the tape, he was appalled by what he heard. “That night my life changed forever,” he said. “What I heard on that audio was so disgusting, so vile.”

Chaifetz heard staffers in Akian’s class, which is comprised of kids who have autism or other learning difficulties, talking about inappropriate subjects and insulting the children by calling them names like “bastard” and “‘tard.”

Caifetz immediately contacted the school district and uploaded a YouTube video which contains excerpts from the audio tape. Once reports of the abuse came to light, the school district dismissed all those responsible, claiming that “the individuals who are heard on the recording raising their voices and inappropriately addressing children no longer work in the district.”
