On June 06, 2012, Phoenix Hanson, a five year old with ASD in Osceola county, Florida, was attacked by his teacher at Narcoossee Elementary in front of an eyewitness, the teacher's aid. This was not the first incident, according to the teacher's aid. Prior to that day, the teacher verbally tormented Phoenix and encouraged his classmates to bully him, both physically and verbally. Phoenix's parents, Craig and Nina Hanson, were devastated. There had never been any indication anything was amiss. In fact, the teacher appeared to be a caring, doting, outstanding educator. She sent them text messages frequently, talking about what a great child Phoenix was, what a pleasure to have in her class. All the while, she was singling him out, using his limited speech to target him and hide what was really going on in her classroom.

Charges were filed and everything was handed over to the state as an abuse case. The state attorney still hasn't decided whether or not to pursue charges. Craig and Nina contacted local news stations to help share their story and shed light on what's becoming an alarming trend in special needs classrooms across the country. Despite being given all the information regarding the case, none of the local media has picked up the story. It's being kept quiet, which is not only a slap in the face to the Hanson family, saying that what happened to their son does not matter, but it's a disservice to other families who have a right to know what is happening in their country, in their own backyard, at one of their schools that perhaps their own children attend. 

Help Nina and Craig give Phoenix, and other children like him, a voice! Tell Orlando media to stop the silence and tell Phoenix's story!
