STAMFORD - A protest was held outside the Stamford courthouse today to call for a law requiring special certification for teachers who work with autistic kids.

The protest comes as a woman accused of faking her credentials to scam the Norwalk school system and parents out of about $200,000 appeared in court.

Parents of autistic children say Stacey Lore took away valuable developmental time from their kids. They say a law would protect other families from going through the same thing.

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal supports the protest, saying the proposed law should require school boards to verify professional certification before hiring applied behavior analysts.
