A 6 year-old boy, diagnosed with severe autism, was bitten in his own classroom at Belvedere Elementary in West Palm Beach.

"This is upsetting to us, this is the first time this particular substitute has worked in this school, and I believe in this district," said Nat Harrington, Public Information Officer with Palm Beach County Schools.

According to the school's principal, it happened in front of two other teachers, who quickly reported the incident.

It is unclear what happened to provoke the attack, but the school said the teacher bit the 6 year-old in the arm.

My mom has been bitten by a six year old autistic student and she didn't go biting him back.

The man wasn't qualified to work in that field.

It puts the thread about the autistic boy and his cage into perspective. If THIS kid had been in a cage this nutcase couldn't have bitten him.

Of course I would NEVER suggest that a fully functioning "normal" adult should be kept in a cage. It's not my place to suggest that maybe it isn't "autistics" who are a problem in society. What "normal" adult would act like an animal towards a child? Hmmmm.


Yes, I'm being facetious. Jam this tosser into a cage ASAP, and get him a muzzle as well.

Sounds like this guy was just a jerkass who couldnt tolerate this kid's autistic behavior and thought that substituting special needs kids would be an easy day.

This really terrifies me. Are the schools just letting any substitute they can find to sub a special needs class and are praying that they survive the day? I'm sure it's easy for these teachers to assume that these kinds of classes are nothing more than teaching mentally retarded children...until they're confronted with an autistic kid.

...people need to wake up and realize that you cant dump Down Syndrome kids and autistics kid together in the same category...or even the same classroom. Your dealing with two different levels of chaos by doing this. But I guess it's cheaper for these schools to clump the abnormal kids together, isnt it?

Holy crap! I can't think of any words to describe how horrifying that is for the child, the family, AND the school district. That teacher should never be allowed to teach in any school again because he obviously has a hell of a lot of issues. :x

Shame on that substitute :thumbdown: :ncool: :shameonyou:
What would he accomplish just by biting a six year old? Only Dracula can accomplish anything by biting people and Halloween's over already.

He tried to get Pavlov on his arm, he must have thought: "it works with dogs so it must work with severe autistic people too."
If so, shamefully he wasn't the first to try... 'unlearning' Autism by ECT - Pavlov method link!
