I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
Well I'm as happy as can be about my son and his new school!!! I really feel that they are gonna give him the help he so much deserves. They are very patient with him and they talk to him.
I went to pick him up after work and his teacher said he basically was ok for the first day. She said that he did cry and scream but they handled it. All she did was tell him that the screaming is his "outside voice" and she talked to him and eventually he stopped. Now my mouth just dropped and I said that's it. And she was like yeah that's pretty much how I handled it. WOWWWWWW!!!
So then I asked about the nap time. She said that he did get up out of his cot but he really didn't disturb anyone. They had to tell him a couple of times, but he did ok. I was just amazed. She told me that they focused on his shapes today. And she just reassured me that he was gonna be ok cuz she had a cuzin whose son is autistic and she just knows from experience how to deal with kids of that matter. I just felt sooooo relieved. Like a big weight just fell off my shoulders. He is in the right place!!!!
Tomorrow I have a conference with the teachers. I really like how they like to get the parents involved with their development. I am just in awe right now cuz it's sooooo different from his other school. They really care and they are here to help him. It almost makes me wanna cry.
