Boy with Autism Locked in ‘cage’ at Private School

A private school for children with autism is being investigated after allegations a boy at the school was being held unsupervised in a lockable fenced structure he called a “cage”.

Officials from the NSW Board of Studies Teaching and Educational Standards body visited the ASPECT Macarthur School on Sydney’s western fringe and interviewed the parent of the child on Tuesday after 7.30 notified Minister Adrian Piccoli’s office of the complaint over the weekend.
