Volunteered at school today..
I knew Mike was having a bad week at school. He pulled 2 cards yesterday and had to stay in at recess today. So I guess I shouldn't have expected to much. However, I was surprised to see my son acting like a significantly autistic child. He has a number of behavioral similarities and has had difficulties in class before but usually having to do with completing work or being impulsive. So far I have been lucky that he has never outright stimmed or acted "autistic" in school (although he will pace and do some at home). He was rocking, rolling his head around, getting up in the middle of class and walking around the room to look at things and not hearing people redirect him back to his seat. The other kids were obviously frustrated with him and treating him differently. At one point the teacher had to tell a student "You don't need to be bossy with Michael, he needs a chance to listen"
This from a kid who 6 months ago I questioned him even being on the spectrum. There has been absolutely no doubt for the past few weeks and especially not after today. I had 45 minutes scheduled to be in class, I actually finished what I was doing early and left early. Couldn't take anymore.
