A recent lawsuit against the district alleging sexual assault against a special needs child illustrates the need for close supervision of these students; sexual misconduct has happened before when teachers and aides leave these kids unsupervised for even a short time. Most of the incidents involve children with very low intelligence levels. They are unable to understand their sexual urges as they become teenagers; they react instinctively without the social controls ‘normal’ youngsters are taught from an early age. They will engage in sexual contact or take somebody else’s property or resort to physical violence at a moment’s notice. They are not responsible for their actions and thus must be protected at all times. It is a very difficult task for teachers and their helpers as they are required to restrain and guide these special needs kids.
