Autistic Child Banned from Public Playground

I’m really upset. The mother and child were told BY THE POLICE that they’d be arrested if they returned to the playground!

“They stated that it didn’t ‘feel right’ having my son on the playground. They felt that the ’emotional safety’ of others was at risk.


The summary of my son’s behavior—the cause of his expulsion from public includes: not responding to hellos, not being interested in playing some games, and reporting that he was being spied upon (which he was), and once, jumping off a bench the wrong way.

The child is homeschooled, but I don’t think this is a homeschooling issue, precisely. It’s pure discrimination based on fear of anyone who is different!

Edit: The family does have a website now.
