I discovered the article above while researching for autism news. Please copy and the paste the link below to read the full article. My heart goes out to the Lee family and I will keep them in my prayers. However, I sadden by how this family loss their autistic son and no one has explanation on how or why this happened. I also have a son who rides the bus to school, so I completely understand how the Lee family felt safe and secure about their son safety. My sons' bus drops him off directly in front of the school then he is escorted to his class. In conclusion, no child should be left on a school bus from 8 am to 4 pm, and whether it is a substitute driver or not. This is even more important for special need drivers because we as parents trust them with our safety and livelihood, and these mistakes can not happen.
