Tell Duval Public Schools not to build an Autism Center that would cause unnecessary segregation.
An Autism Center school in Duval county would cause unnecessary segregation of students with Autism and make it more difficult for the prospective students to interact with their non-disabled peers. Teaching students with Autism grouped by their disability is an administrative conveinence. Children with Autism excel with structure, routine, and language rich environments with many opportunities for socialization. By sign ing this petition you are asking the DCPS board members to cancel their proposed plan to open an Autism center in the Duval county Public school system. The school board vote is occuring on February 2, 2016.
