PORT ST. LUCIE — Melissa Barton said she is considering legal action after her son's kindergarten teacher led his classmates to vote him out of class.
After each classmate was allowed to say what they didn't like about Barton's 5-year-old son, Alex, his Morningside Elementary teacher Wendy Portillo said they were going to take a vote, Barton said.
By a 14 to 2 margin, the students voted Alex — who is in the process of being diagnosed with autism — out of the class. Good for them, designer Autism and its so called experts have convinced themselves and others "its the Autism and not the child". Long before Autism went designer and its even documented in our stories OLD autistic people before Rain Man found ways to fit in. NOT being diagnosed was our first blessing.
Melissa Barton filed a complaint with Morningside's school resource officer, who investigated the matter, Port St. Lucie Department spokeswoman Michelle Steele said. But the state attorney's office concluded the matter did not meet the criteria for emotional child abuse, so no criminal charges will be filed, Steele said.
Port St. Lucie Police no longer are investigating, but police officials are documenting the complaint, she said.
Steele said the teacher confirmed the incident took place.
Portillo could not be reached for comment Friday.
Steele said the boy had been sent to the principal's office because of disciplinary issues. When he returned, Portillo made him go to the front of the room as a form of punishment, she said. I don't know how many times I was singled out in my school in the 1960s and yes sent to the Principals office. It was "expected" and in the end all of the humiliation was great, it built character, taught me right from wrong and by 6th grade I figured out enough autism to actually start fitting in. OLD autism pre Rain Man is filled with similar success stories and our stories are not allowed to pass the peer reviews of modern Billion Dollar Autism. Quite frankly it would be pretty obvious modern Autism was invented when they reset the standards for autism too low and suddenly we were all "retarded." We used to thrive and grow and achieve and many of us were little professors and came out pretty well. Modern autism is not thrilled with our success. One of the big reasons my book was banished was I had chapters in my book like Autistic Driving-how many of our modern "4th graders in college drive"? There are at least 5 more books like this and we have all been banned from auti$m.
Barton said her son is in the process of being diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a type of high-functioning autism. Alex began the testing process in February at the suggestion of Morningside Principal Marcia Cully.
Children diagnosed with Asperger's often exhibit social isolation and eccentric behavior..
Alex has had disciplinary issues because of his disability, Barton said. After the family moved into the area and Alex and his sibling arrived at the school in January, Alex spent much of the time in the principal's office, she said. Most of that poor behavior is the direct result of the designer Autism Curse, I will be the first to admit we had trouble growing up autistic BUT without the "diagnosis" we were far better off. People wanted to help us and they did! My teachers and tutors and my parents all unknowingly exploited my splinter skills give me a connection to the real world. Once I had a connection I was able to fill in socially. This was old absently working autism that worked. The first thing to disappear from Autism after It went Designer was our Splinter skill talents and their connection they gave us to the real world. The reason most of us have never been heard of is we missed Rain Man 's curse and we out perform our modern day counterparts that have been behind the 8 ball since their diagnosis.
He also had problems at his last school, but he did not have issues during his two years of preschool, Barton said.
School and district officials have met with Barton and her son to create an individual education plan to address his difficulties, she said. Portillo attended these meetings, Barton said.
Barton said after the vote, Portillo asked Alex how he felt.
"He said, 'I feel sad,' " Barton said. I would rather this poor chap learn this lesion in grade school than in the real world-you think this is rough learn this in later life and he would be in for more a shock. I sincerely hope there is more in his future than a group home or a 4th grader in college but he like all the others has been cursed with the best of good intention that went astray.
Alex left the classroom and spent the rest of the day in the nurse's office, she said.
Baritone said when she came to pick up her son at the school Wednesday, he was leaving the nurse's office.
"He was shaken up," she said. Get used to it mate, the times in Gym Class when I was black balled humiliated, the times in school I was made fun of all went miles in the end to help make me a good person that fit into society. All of this Autism of today could be reversed and our Autistic loved ones could do autism education by 6th Grade and then be Main streamed. Sadly the "experts" that know autism so well run and ruined the show and have a hold of the wrong end of the stick. Look at their sudden Epidemic?
Barton said the nurse told her to talk with Portillo, who told her what happened.
Alex hasn't been back to school since then, and Barton said he won't be returning. He starts screaming when she brings him with her to drop off his sibling at school.
Thursday night, his mother heard him saying "I'm not special" over and over.
Barton said Alex is reliving the incident. I suspect this poor guy is really doing just that reliving the event in his Picture thoughts. Based in your Daydreams picture thoughts are the Di Vinci Code of Life that are supposed to happen during the 'lack of eye contact' an autism keypoint. The Di Vinci Code we figured out is the very key to autism and psychology. IF any autism or psychology expert knew our thought process they would be able to help this guy re live those thoughts and learn how NOT to be a "geek"and connect those thoughts to normal ones just like you use. Autism starts in daydream type thoughts and is converted to normal ones. Thus I call Autism the building blocks of the human mind. At one time before Dr. Rimland (father of Rain Man) and his party kicked out the old Autism Researchers that knew us Autism, was on the verge of being solved before it went designer.
The other students said he was "disgusting" and "annoying," Barton said.
"He was incredibly upset," Barton said. "The only friend he has ever made in his life was forced to do this."
St. Lucie School's spokeswoman Janice Karst said the district is investigating the incident, but could not make any further comment. Again, I'd rather learn this horrible lesion is school than on the street. Autism can be controlled behavior wise and our anthropology proves we don't have to be trouble or annoy they whole class as we did autism. Modern autism has some very ignorant professionals that don't have their heart in autism for more than their paycheck. Once they invented autism to a designer Mr/Dd condition the epidemic of ignorance had no choice but to obey. All of mankind is paying the price. We have connected Autism to Einstein and even good social traits but none of what we connected has been in a text book before. Its Autism Research's responsibility to investigate all of autism, yes, even the bits they forgot. They are more worried of their NASCAR status and getting on Ophrea and Larry King it seems. Curse you Rain Man!
Vern Melvin, Department of Children and Families circuit administrator, confirmed the agency is investigating an allegation of abuse at Morningside but said he could not elaborate.
