Peter Gwazdauskas, a special needs boy with Downs Syndrome, is going to a normal school with normal students. Originally, he was in a special needs school with autistic/special needs students. The reason why Peter is going to a normal school is because a federal law states that special needs students should be educated with normal students in normal schools. Peter’s first half of the school year was not going well because he was doing behaviors such as making loud noises, rolling around on the floor, and being injurious towards other students in class.
