Consultation to discuss legal rights regarding potential abuse of son.

DD is a 5-year-old Kindergartner who has been diagnosed with ADHD and a speech delay. In September 2018, he came home with a bruise in the shape of a handprint on his arm, as well as some bruises on his legs. Initially, DD refused to tell his parents, NS and BD, what happened, but he ultimately explained that he had hit another child on the playground, and his teacher had grabbed him in a rough manner. NS and BD reported the incident to the police, who are investigating. A few days later, DD reported that his teacher had called him “stupid” and an “asshole” and hit him. DD has been begging not to go to school anymore and having nightmares. NS and BD are seeking a consultation with an attorney about what her legal rights are.
