School Officials Reported Mom to Child Services Because A Psychic Told Them To!

Almost three weeks ago, Colleen Leduc got a call from her 11-year-old autistic daughter's school. The school reported her to Children's Aid Society that the girl might have been sexually abused ... based on the words of a psychic!

Leduc's weird tale began on May 30, when she dropped young Victoria off for class at Terry Fox Elementary and headed in to work, only to receive a frantic phone call from the school telling her it was urgent she come back right away.

The frightened mother rushed back to the campus and was stunned by what she heard - the principal, vice-principal and her daughter's teacher were all waiting for her in the office, telling her they'd received allegations that Victoria had been the victim of sexual abuse - and that the CAS had been notified.

How did they come by such startling knowledge? Leduc was incredulous as they poured out their story.

"The teacher looked and me and said: 'We have to tell you something. The educational assistant who works with Victoria went to see a psychic last night, and the psychic asked the educational assistant at that particular time if she works with a little girl by the name of "V." And she said 'yes, I do.' And she said, 'well, you need to know that that child is being sexually abused by a man between the ages of 23 and 26.'" (with video) - Thanks Some Canadian Skeptic!

Basically this accusation came after the mother had run-ins with the school about their ability to educate her child and keep her safe at school.

Every year, thousands of US parents with disabled children are either threatened into submission or reported to Child Protective Services after run-ins with their child's school. I should know: it happened to us.

My son's school wanted him out -- they didn't want children who were deaf and cognitively challenged to be included in the deaf program. On the advice of deaf education experts from Gallaudet, we fought to keep him in the program. The school responded by reporting us to CPS, citing neglect. CPS quickly discovered the allegation as "unfounded."

I will never trust anyone in the public school system again.

The Canadian media has been following this story, and reports that Children's Aid was quick to reject the case as ridiculous. However, they have to examine any report, and that is what they did.
I think the school owes the family one hell of an apology, if not a hefty cash settlement.
At the time of this writing they have issued no apology at all however.
