TX: Mon removes autistic son from school, alleging seclusion abuse

A San Antonio woman has removed her autistic son from school after she says she discovered he was being isolated for no reason.

Tonya Wells has pictures of her 6-year-old son, Dmitri, isolated in a bare room at Langley Elementary School. In the pictures, Dmitri is against a wall or on the floor. An aide is near him. Wells says her son was put in isolation for no reason.

Wells is currently homeschooling Dmitri. She's gotten a notice from the school district about his absence, but says she won't send him back until staff there get better training on how to work with autistic students. She has hired a lawyer.

The district says they believe the school followed correct procedures.
