No parent sends their child to school in the morning thinking that will be the last good-bye.
Although parents of disabled and autistic children will encounter more difficulties throughout their day, they should never have to fear this is a possibility. When it comes to children with disabilities, school districts are expected to have health and safety plans firmly in place, with protocols clearly communicated and strictly followed.
The worst part is that when this doesn't happen, these children are poorly situated to speak out about and let their parents know when a lapse has occurred. That's why often, parents don't know there is a problem until too late.
