Family of 8-year-old with autism sues Berwyn school district, alleges abuse

The family of a 8-year-old boy with severe autism sued their Berwyn school district Monday, alleging abuse and neglected supervision of their child.

On Wednesday, second grader Gianni Fata-Roden came home from school with permanent marker scribblings on his bare back and neck, his family says. Gianni has limited speech abilities and was unable to say how he ended up with the writings on his back.
