I mostly kind of lurk on here but had a question.. My ds is 10 and in 5th grade. He has Aspergers and ADHD. In a main stream classroom, He started school on last Wed. and the teacher and school seemed to be on the same page with everything and us. So Fri. he had his first blow up (outburst) in class, when his class was talking and making rules and consequences for the classroom. He has a particular girl in the classroom that he has issue with that made some off comment referring to him, and I'm not sure how the teacher dealt with it. But most of problem comes in when alot of the rules my ds felt were directed at him.
Am I wrong in thinking that doing something like letting student make their own rules and consequences might be hard on a child like my ds and knowing he was in the class should not have done that.. I mean the school has set policies and most of the other classrooms don't do it. I really don't know how to phrase this and hope not over exaggerate things during the first few weeks of school (as his teacher knows my husband and has been a teacher for awhile) She takes on the kids will be kids approach and states that ds is just like any other boy in her class and more behaved than some. Just looking for some insight??
And just for those who may remember the last posting, this is the school who informed the whole class of his condition (we have been there dealt with that) and I have decided that I have no problem pulling him on homeschool at this point..
Thanks In Advance
