An epileptic and non-verbal 5-year-old boy was isolated and clothed in a trash bag by his kindergarten teacher, according to his mother, Nyesha Terry, in Chicago.

Terry found her son, Lloyd, sitting in a desk that was separated from his classmates. Lloyd wore a trash bag wrapped around his torso. Terry made a complaint and came back the next day where she found her son in the same circumstance.

“My heart broke,”said Terry. “He is the only child that was isolated.”

The trash bag was used only because the teacher felt as though Lloyd’s shirt would get wet due to the 5-year-old’s condition, according to Terry.

Saliva often drips onto Lloyd’s shirt due to his epileptic condition. Terry believes that the school could have used bibs or other types of clothing it had stored, according to Fox News.

“Because it’s hazardous,” said Terry. “He could chew on it or swallow a piece, he could be playing with it and suffocate himself.”

The mother Terry contacted Child Protective Services as soon as possible.

CPS said in a statement:

“We work to ensure all students are comfortable in their learning environment. This incident is inexcusable and CPS has launched an investigation. We will take all appropriate actions to ensure this issue is resolved and prevented from happening again.”

Terry bought Lloyd a bright, plastic vest after the pair of episodes occurred, hopeful the trash bag would be relegated to the garbage, according to Fox News.

“I hope that this will just give parents with special-needs children some insight to what’s going on when we’re not around our children,” said Terry.
