The mother of an Indigenous boy who made global headlines after being bullied says she was left in the dark by the school for months following.
Video went viral in February of nine-year-old Quaden, who has a common form of dwarfism, saying he was going to kill himself after being taunted at school.
Yarraka Bayles has told the disability royal commission the school has made recent progress but it took a long time to develop a plan for her son to return to the classroom.
“It was just our support services checking in with us,” Ms Bayles said on Monday.
“Quaden felt like he was being punished because he actually wanted to go back to school.
“There were many, many months that went by where it was just me and Quaden sitting at home. There wasn’t anything else we could do and it was very, very difficult.”
Ms Bayles told the hearing she would like to see the creation of “Quaden’s Law” to help all kids feel safe at school.
