My name is Nancy and my oldest son, Dalton, is 7 years old and has AS.
There have been some major changes for Dalton this year and he seems to have come thru OK. In January we relocated from Indiana to Florida. He is attending a much larger school here then in the past. To help him with his adjustment they placed him in an autism classroom for most of the day. He is in a mainstream class for 45 minutes every afternoon for social studies and science (both subjects that he enjoys). He also goes to lunch and specials with this 1st grade class. Next yr we have decided to try him in a mainstream 2nd grade with him going out to the Autism class for math. He is also going to be in an intensive reading group for help with his comprehension (his school devideds up all the kids into reading groups by abilities). His vocabluary comprehension is excellent. He scores into 3rd grade. I am hopefull it will work out.
Dalton has started to act out at home with his younger brothers, Dylan 5 and Garrett 3. He has become more physical with them, well mostly the 5 yr old. I wonder how much of this is brother stuff and how much is AS. He is also begun verbal taunting. He calls everyone names, including myself, DH and his grandpa. I have tried explaining to him that this is neither nice nor acceptable, but I dont seem to be getting thru.
Any advice would be appreciated.
