THORNTON - A Thornton Central School kindergartner with behavioral issues is not getting the education he needs and is entitled to, according to his mother, Tara Celeste.
Her son Liam has behavioral issues and his mother says he needs a special education aide at Thornton Central School or to be sent to a school for children with special needs.
But when she requested a special education aide for her son, she said officials at the school told her they don't have aides available.
Celeste said she has turned to school officials repeatedly but that her cries for help are being ignored.
Liam has been at the school since November. After several months, she said Liam's behavior worsened and she asked the school for an aide again.
According to school officials, the bad behavior was only once in a while and not consistent enough to require an aide.
NH1 News reached out to the superintendent, the principal and the assistant principal to try and get some answers.
"The Thorton School does not comment on individual students or families," the principal said, even after learning the Celeste had given the school permission to discuss her son's case.
Celeste said she will continue to advocate on her son's behalf.
