The mother of a preschooler with special needs alleges her 3-year-old child was abused by teachers, and has filed a lawsuit in response.
It's the third such lawsuit against Livonia Public Schools, a district outside Detroit. Two other lawsuits, filed last month, allege that three other children with special needs in the same class were also abused.
Especially disturbing, the suits claim that staff members knew about the abuse but didn't do much to stop it, reports the Observer and Eccentric. To combat the growing concern of children with special needs being abused by teachers and staff members, the suit is calling for a different kind of remedy.
