On this edition of Autism Live: Shannon Penrod discusses the outrageous behavior of the tenured teacher who laughed and videotaped a student with ASD trapped in his chair in her classroom.  The teacher then emailed the videotape to colleagues who reported her to the school board.  The teacher is now being defended by area parents as being a good teacher who was just finding the humor and the "teaching opportunity" of the moment.  Penrod discusses the definition on bullying and offers her perspective as an Autism parent and former teacher.  Viewer questions about toileting and self-injurious behavior are discussed.
