Why do they not see what I see?
My ss8 is autistic. High functioning, but still Autistic. Needs an aide with him in a regular classroom, needs lots of breaks, lots of accommodations, etc. Our local agency that provides him with a "behavior therapist" has just done another evaluation and said that he NO LONGER QUALIFIES for these services!! What, are you kidding me?
This kid STIMMS morning, noon and night. All day in school, all day at home. Barely ever leaves our house to go outside and play with other kids. He occastionally goes outside, where he proceeds to stim and the other kids play around him.
so my question of course became "what about all his stimming?" They said that his occupational therapists should be the ones addressing that behavior. He gets an hour and a half of o/t per week. not even CLOSE to being enough to get him to stop this stimming behavior in public.
I"m not even sure why I care, as just about everything about this child irks me to my core, I guess I just don't wanna see him teased at school.....and I get tired of listening to and watching him do it all over my kitchen all the time!
Now what do I do?????
