That's a tough decision. The buses can be very loud, although they normally have the kindys sit near the front where they can keep an eye on them. If you can swing it, AM might be the way to go.

Just had an OT visit today, I mentioned it to her, and her immediate response was NO, keep him off the bus at this stage.

I'm glad that she's going to write you the letter, he'd probably get more car sick on a bus.

Well I called the transportation director back, she flat out told me they are not making any exceptions all the am slots are full. She did say I could call the principle at the school, just didn't sound to willing to compromise, even after I told her what the OT said. Maybe I can get somewhere with the school itself, instead of the districts transportation coord.

I would think that they would have to make the accommodation? Hopefully the principal will be more helpful.
