My autistic son was Baker Acted the first day of middle school.

This is a terror I wouldn’t wish on any family, especially the Autistic child. It’s a terror we parents ALL have.

“The new school resource officer overheard and decided to Baker Act our child. Without context. Without questioning his stress level or mental abilities.

The guidance counselor chose not to get involved. He chose not to implement the functional behavior plan on file. He chose to delay contacting us. He chose not to prepare the teachers and staff who would be interacting with our child.

He disregarded everything outlined in the IEP.
Because of his laissez faire approach, my son suffered.”
