Autism Stigma: Father Opens Up About Son's Shocking School Treatment (VIDEO)

"His teacher and aides had been verbally abusing him and bullying him," Chalfetz said. "And one of the reasons I believe they did it and said some of the things that they did was because they probably thought that no one would ever find out."

Joining Chalfetz and Redd to discuss how autistic people are treated outside their homes were Michael Rosenthal, a pediatric neuropsychologist at Child Mind Institute, Trevor Pacelli the autistic author of '6 Word Lessons: Growing Up Autistic' and his mother Patty Pacelli, the co-founder of Pacelli Publishing.
