My son is austic and non verbal. I received a phone call from the behavioral supervisor at his school stating that my son had a behavior and went after the teacher assistant. She proceeded to push him to the ground when he came towards her, where he hit his face off the ground. Their policy strictly states that they're not allowed to retaliate in anyway. They told me they investigated and she was fired. It's also on video. Am I able to sue her? I don't want the school to be in trouble for her actions, but I just can't shake the fact that she will be able to go somewhere else to work, and potentially have this happen to another child. What are my legal rights? Thank you.
