Legislation to address student care for autistic children

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-One state lawmaker says he wants aides in public schools to be trained to take care of students with autism.

This comes after the video surfaced showing a school bus aide beating a student with autism in Bedford County.

According to the Times-Dispatch, this new bill will be introduced by Henrico County Delegate Jimmie Massie.

The republican says a similar bill failed last year because of the uncertain monetary impact.
