Leslie: My son is autistic. Lately his meltdowns have included a lot of disrespect. The principal is now saying when he is disrespectful, the teacher is to walk away and he will get a zero on the assignment, quiz, or test. I feel like this is an unfair academic punishment for a manifestation of his disability. However, I do not know how to fight this. Can anybody give me advice. Am I wrong? If I am not wrong then what can I do and say?
