Teacher seen dragging child is charged with assault

Angel Nelson  Facebook

The family says the woman in the video was in charge of the special needs program at the school.

A former Kentucky teacher is facing charges after dragging a 9-year-old autistic student down a school hallway by his wrists. But did not identify Abrams or her position.

Abrams is charged with fourth-degree assault and is expected to appear in court Wednesday, Kentucky State Police told WCHS, adding that the investigation is continuing. Specifics of what that means were unclear. They only show what happened outside of the classroom.

Nelson said her son is having a far better experience at his new school.

Angel Nelson told ABC News that Alan had been diagnosed with autism, depression, anxiety, ADHD and PTSD, and Abrams was his resource teacher. "In addition, his speech is also limited", she said in a Facebook post. An IEP is an individualized education program created for special education students. She added that her son said Abrams also threw him down hard onto a chair. At that point, she yells at him to get up while pulling on the boy's body as he refuses to move.

She also said that because the camera in the classroom was "turned toward a corner" and because of his speech limitations, she doesn't have any way of knowing what happened after that, or if any other forms of abuse took place.

"It breaks my heart for him because he does try so hard to fit in", said the boy's mother Angel Nelson.

Angel and Alan's stepfather, Calep, also encouraged parents to look out for their children.

Also in her post Nelson said that all schools should be required to have cameras to protect students and teachers.

"He's trying to adapt, make friends", she said.

"The fact that my son is not able to fully verbalize what he went through means that we must fight that much harder for all kids, but especially the kids who can not speak for themselves", the upset mother wrote on Facebook. A parent was contacted and the student was assessed by the school nurse.

In announcing Abrams' termination on Monday, the Greenup County School District said in a statement that a formal investigation had been conducted. "Each school has a specially trained team to address immediate issues".

Abrams did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Nelson told the Daily Dot she got word of the incident from the principal, but didn't see the video until her lawyer subpoenaed it from the school.

"It is my belief that all schools should be required to have cameras in place (that cannot be turned to a corner) in order to protect students and teachers", the mother added.

She claimed that he sustained multiple wrist injuries after being pulled by the teacher. The teachers aide no longer works for the district, although officials have not provided specifics. "The superintendent also followed protocol and reported the incident to the Kentucky Education Standards Board". "We should never have to worry about anything like this ever happening". "Do you want to walk", the teacher is heard asking the child in the clip. But Heskins said that school staff don't always adhere to the state regulation. "The district followed established safety protocol as soon as this situation became known", the statement said.
