Young Girl’s “meltdown” Caused her to be “kicked off” Plane, along with her mother, because Pilot felt “uncomfortable”

Greetings everyone!  I would like to share with you a disturbing video I ran across regarding a 13-year old girl, with Autism, and her mother who were basically kicked off a United Airlines’ flight due to the pilot feeling “uncomfortable” because the young girl had a “meltdown.”  I just think if these airlines and others were educated and trained in Autism Spectrum Disorders, this wouldn’t occur.  Autism Awareness shouldn’t be limited to one month out of the year.  Education should be consistent and ongoing!  The more we know about Autism, the better we are in understanding how it affects those who are on the Spectrum.  Take a look at this embarrassing moment for the young girl and her mother.
