An autistic schoolboy has been cruelly mocked by a teacher in a video filled with sexual innuendos – as his parents blast the school over the ‘disgusting’ act.
Melbourne father Vince and mother Leah expressed their outrage after the couple’s son Max, 10, became the focus of a vile end-of-year school video at Rosewood Downs Primary School.
Max, who is on the spectrum and also suffers from ADHD and anxiety, was featured in the clip alongside 12 other boys who have learning difficulties.
The video was created by a teacher for the primary school’s departing principal and was later published on YouTube by staff.
It mocks the 13 boys and is filled with a number of sexual innuendos that are related back to the children.

One section shows photos of the kids with a sarcastic caption that reads: ‘Can’t forget about the Grade 1 kids, who are such a friendly and welcoming bunch. Why would Julian (the principal) want to leave them?’
‘Surely it isn’t because of the preps, and their cute and adorable ways.
‘To be fair, 6 more years with these delights would make most people want to prematurely evacuate,’ the caption added.
Vince and Leah told A Current Affair’s Allison Langdon that they were ‘speechless’, ‘shocked’ and ‘absolutely disgusted’ by the clip.
‘It made me feel sick, it was just disgusting. I don’t even have the words because I’m so angry about what I’ve seen,’ Vince said.
‘I don’t understand how someone could even make a video with all this sexual innuendo and then add children to it. What’s going through their mind?
‘For someone to think about that and add the faces of the children and of our family in there is just so disrespectful.’
Vince and Leah believe the 13 boys were specially ‘handpicked’ by teachers to be in the video.

The pair had dealings with the school in the past over a number of incidents involving Max.
Allison Langdon told the parents that she would be ‘filled with rage’ if it was her child that was being targeted by the school.
‘If you think this is funny, you shouldn’t be teaching,’ Leah added.
The parents claim the video has negatively affected Max’s mental health.
‘He started walking around saying, ‘I should be normal, I shouldn’t have autism, I should be normal’,’ Vince revealed.
An investigation into the school has been launched since the vile video was published online.
Victoria’s Education Minister Natalie Hutchins said her department was investigating the school.
