DAILYKENN.com -- When police arrived to pick up the six year old girl, she was described as "pleasant." School authorities, however, described the special needs child as disruptive. Nadia, was "destroying school property, attacking staff, out of control, and running out of school," the report said.
"When a student's behavior presents a risk of self-harm or harm to others, the school district's procedure is to call Child Guidance, our crisis response provider," the school district said.
The girl's mother seems nonplussed that school authorities called her after the little girl was taken by police.
The incident occurred in Florida where officials may hold a person for 72 hours if that person is deemed to be a threat to others or him/herself.
According to the University of Florida Health's website, "The Baker Act is a Florida law that enables families and loved ones to provide emergency mental health services and temporary detention for people who are impaired because of their mental illness, and who are unable to determine their needs for treatment."
The news reports mentioned the mother and her reaction. No mention was made of a father. Obviously, there must have been a father somewhere. We should wonder: Are learning disabilities and behavioral problems more prevalent in non-traditional families?
