Treatment of special needs kids in NY draws ire

A handful of parents – and one teaching consultant – turned out at last week’s Board of Education meeting for the Coxsackie-Athens Central School District to complain about the district’s treatment of families with special needs children.

Of particular concern were those students with autism spectrum disorder.

“I counted my files this morning, and I have advocated for over fifty students in Greene County, with 23 of them coming from this district alone. That should tell you something – there are issues going on,” said CarolAnn Luccio, founder of The Autism Connection of Greene County.

Luccio, through her organization, has been a tireless advocate for children with the disorder. She does much of her outreach in Cairo, but she finds the most problems are right here in her home district.
