As a child, it is tough enough to have to deal with some of the struggles that growing up may bring. Whether it be dealing with bullies, problems with friends, struggling in school (socially or educationally), or just trying to find your way, any added stress is unwelcome. For one child in particular, the added stress comes from the school district itself. The school, Big Beaver Elementary located in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, is facing a lawsuit from the parents of a child in the fifth grade. They filed the lawsuit on Thursday January third. Why you ask? Well the school is accused of purposely avoiding assessing the child for possible disabilities, despite the fact that he shows signs of having Asperger syndrome. For those that do not know, Asperger syndrome is an autism spectrum disorder. The parents also claim that the school has a policy that prohibits staff from identifying children with disabilities. They are also accusing the school of not protecting their child from harassment coming from fellow students. Their son attended the school for three years before moving to another district. His parents have filed the class-action lawsuit on behalf of the parents and the students with disabilities who attend Big Beaver Elementary school.
