Education chief slams Hanson autism remark

The One Nation leader suggested students with autism be removed from mainstream classrooms because they were holding back other children's learning.

Aly said the major issue with Hanson's suggestion this week is there are subtleties when it comes to where each child with autism falls on the spectrum.

We have to look to other countries to see how they ae handling the increase in autistic kids.

While doctors feared Mitch would never speak or play with his peers, he went on to be enrolled in a mainstream classroom and "he does very, very well", Husar said. But he is - and he does very, very well.

"It sets them up for a life where they will be empathetic, and compassionate, and not fearful of people who are different to you", she said.

"It's no good saying we have to allow these kids to feel good about themselves and we don't want to upset them and make them feel hurt". He said Senator Hanson's thinking was very outdated.

This did not stop shockwaves rippling across the country, and many parents and experts have joined in the condemnation of Senator Hanson's comments.

"I'm supportive of children with autism in standard classes", he told Sky News, adding he believed her description of children with autism as being disruptive was irrelevant because all children were capable of misbehaving at times. As things are now, their best option is sadly these special schools, but that's if you can get them enrolled there.

"If you incorporate them into mainstream so they can build their capacity, and they do with support, then they become independent, contributing members of mainstream society".

We need autistic schools specialising in programs to teach kid in a safe environment when they are young and when they will most benefit.

Senator Hanson was strongly criticised by Labor and the Greens on Thursday, but Education Minister Simon Birmingham denies coalition MPs were told to remain silent during final negotiations on the so-called Gonski 2.0 package.

"I think that we have more autistic children, yet we are not providing the special classrooms or the schools for these autistic children", she said.

"When they are available, they are at a huge expense to parents".

"Because often - and this is the case with what used to be called Aspergers - they're actually really, really good at school".

"But we have to be realistic at times and consider the impact that is having on other children in that classroom".

"But what they do have in the public education system - hopefully - is teachers who are aware of how best to support those children".

"They learn compassion. They learn how to deal with these matters". But the problem was with the system, not the students, she said.

Her comments have drawn widespread criticism, but Senator Hanson argues she was taken out of context, and put the controversy down to political point-scoring.

"If it was one of my children I would love all the time given to them to give them those opportunities - but is it at the loss of our other kids?"

Senator Hanson was announcing her party's decision to side with the government on Wednesday when she veered onto the topic of students with disabilities, including autism.

"Once again, this is the media playing games with One Nation", Senator Hanson said on her Facebook page.
