Autistic child still waiting for school bus to pick him up

A young autistic child in the borough has been waiting for more than a week for his school bus to come and pick him up for class.

Jacqueline Soto, the mother of 2-year-old Jaden Soto, says that the bus has not come to take him to his classes at Thursday's Child in Dyker Heights.

The school says it recently hired a new busing company, Professional Charter Services, which has failed to pick up a number of children. School officials are confident the missed children will be picked up starting tomorrow.
