Parents can only hope that when they are sending their child to school, their kids will be in safe hands and would be spending their day in an environment where they feel comfortable. However, an incident that took place in Florida can send shivers down the spine of any parent for just how evil the teachers who were supposed to look after their kids were.
The terrible incident occurred at Silver Sands School in Fort Walton Beach, which is close to Destin. There, a teacher named Margaret Wolthers and two teacher’s aides, Diana LaCroix and Carolyn Madison have been accused of having abused three children with autism. And to make things worse, it was not just a one-off incident.
The three educators were reported to have carried out abusive acts repeatedly between between the months fo Septeber 1, 2018 to November 14, 2018, as reported by ABC13.
The suspects would allegedly lock the differently-abled children up in a dark bathroom, or they would deliberately blow a whistle into the ear of an autistic child who was wearing headphones to protect himself from loud noises due to his low sensory auditory threshold, according to investigators.
