‘How’s that for your anxiety?’ Teachers threaten to punch nonverbal 6-year-old autistic girl in teeth & face, lawsuit says

The mother of a 6-year-old West Virginia girl filed a civil lawsuit against the Berkeley County Board of Education and others, after claiming teachers and their aides emotionally abused her little girl.

According to court documents filed by Charleston lawyer Ben Salango, on behalf of parent, Amber Pack, three former employees at Berkeley Heights Elementary in Berkeley County have been accused of abusing a nonverbal autistic first grader. The incident allegedly happened during the 2018-2019 school year.

Pack, who filed the lawsuit after noticing her daughter cried before and after classes, put a secret recording device in her daughter’s hair before sending her to school in October 2018.  The recording device captured a disturbing exchange between the girl and her teachers and the aides, as they insulted, threatened, and berated the child, according to the lawsuit.
