Camber Hayman, whose 14-year-old son has Asperger's syndrome, says police officers in Texas' Richardson district may need better training to deal with students with special needs. In May, police issued a citation to Hayman's son for using an expletive in his junior-high-school class. Hayman said she worries about what might have happened if her son had been perceived as resisting the officer. The Dallas Police Department said that would not have happened and that training on mental health and sensitivity is provided to all officers.
