School, Behaviors, and What Happens When Things Fall Apart

From AS Parenting (Autism Speaks - Parenting)

Daniel is in 3rd grade now. Did you guys know? This blog was started in 2008 so you guys have known us for nearly all of his school career. Both boys are definitely getting older as am I. We are all learning things about ourselves, where we live, where we work and where we play.

As an 8 year old, Daniel has learned a great deal of things, but some of them are not great things. They are things a lot of kids pick up. The difference is that Daniel is Autistic and has two separate aids with him rotating throughout the day. Every thing he does is recorded and told to us.

So what’s this all about? Next week we have an IEP meeting. We have a crew coming for our side and the school has their own crew. I hope they remember that we’re going to need more than the small conference room off the front office.

I’ve asked for the behavior data (which I haven’t received yet, but know a semester’s worth of behavior sheets are not going to be easy to copy). I’ve asked that the behaviorist to be there.
