What on earth were you thinking?  The Senior Kindergarten class in my kids’ school has four autistic children in it, three of whom are “runners”, with various and sundry other high needs children, in a class of 21, with ONE teacher’s aid.  The poor teacher is also dealing with severe arthritis.  How is closing autism units helping the autistic kids?  How is this fair to the other children in the classroom?  Putting the autistic children in a special class with teachers who have special training isn’t warehousing them – dumping the poor kids in a classroom with inadequate support is.  Honestly, I wonder how you can sleep at night.
