Autistic Boys' Parents Blame Schools for Behavior Issues

DAYTONA BEACH — Parents of two kindergarteners with autism have filed complaints charging Volusia school officials failed to follow federal law to address the boys' behavior problems.
"Essentially, Volusia County public schools are discriminating against my clients based upon their disabilities," said Jamison Jessup of Deltona, who's executive director of and is serving as the children's advocate in both cases.
Volusia's exceptional student education director, Barbara Bush, denied the accusation and said school officials were in the process of addressing the parents' concerns when the complaints were filed with the district.
