Surveillance video subpoenaed by the family's lawyer shows a teacher dragging the 9-year-old up and down the hallway by his wrists.

"After he let go of the chair, she grabbed him by the wrist and drug him down the hallway from one classroom into another, according to school video footage".

GREENUP COUNTY, KY- Angel Nelson and her family just moved to Wurtland October 1st.

"The fact that my son is not able to fully verbalize what he went through means that we must fight that much harder for all kids, but especially the kids who can not speak for themselves", the upset mother wrote on Facebook.

Abrams is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday, according to Greenup court records.

Along with the posting the video, the mother also explained her son was diagnosed with "autism, ADHD, PTSD, anxiety and depression". Outbursts can happen and the boy's parents believed his IEP (Individualized Education Program) would accomodate him.

The incident happened in October. "It was so hard for me to watch", she told WSAZ on Monday. "He didn't do anything wrong". At different points in the video, the boy is either lying on his back or sliding on his knees. The teacher pulls him by one arm at times, and both of his arms at other times.

Nelson said the injuries will cause her son emotional trauma.

Angel says her son told her the teacher also roughly threw him into a chair in a classroom.

"He's trying to adapt and make friends", she told CNN Monday.

Nelson said her son got frustrated after a teacher told him to keep working, or to do more work, when he wanted to take a break.

The video showed the boy being dragged past a group of students waiting outside a classroom.

"This is the same lady that looked us in the eye and said 'Your son is safe with me, '" Calep said.

PEOPLE was unable to reach Abrams for comment, but the mother indicated that the teacher had defended her actions as necessary.

Kim and Xi held talks Tuesday - believed to be Kim's birthday - shortly after the North Korean leader arrived in Beijing . Beyond confirming his presence in Beijing , no details have been provided by either North Korea or China on his schedule.

Nelson said the same day her son was dragged, she had X-rays taken of his wrist and tailbone.

'She claimed she was preventing him from harming himself but it doesn't line up with his actions from the video.

"I think she should possibly face the inside of a jail", Calep added.

Kentucky State Trooper David Boarman, a spokesman for the State Police, said once the school learned about the incident, administrators called social services, which then alerted authorities. "The parent was contacted immediately and the student was assessed by the school nurse and referred for outside medical evaluation".

"The Greenup County School District prioritizes the safety of our students".

"I'm not surprised", Heskins said about the four incidents, "Restraint is an intervention that is much misused across the state". Each school has a specially trained team to address immediate issues, and the school has teachers specially trained to address autism-related behaviors.

CORRECTION: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly spelled school district Superintendent Sherry Horsley's last name. "Also, all schools should have more training for teachers to handle children with disabilities and to learn proper protocol to retrain and redirect of needed". "In addition, his speech is also limited", adding that her son was "experiencing a meltdown (which he sometimes experiences as part of his diagnoses)".
