hey there girls,i need some help.im kinda of stuck on what to do.we had a tour of the school for autism,and well now im stuck as to what i should do.i would like as many opinion that i can get.have your children ever gone to a special school for autism?it seemed to be a great program that they have there,some really wonderfull things.and a few teachers that really know what we go through everyday because they are going through the same thing with their children/child at home.im scared that if i put lil guy in there it will be vary hard for me to get him out.is this true?when i asked if the groups where mixed/hfa-severe and so on,i didnt really get a direct anwser.it was more like, "ummm" we try to keep hfa together.so im kinda leary on that one beacuse i would like him to be in a group that is hf.lil guy is high functing,but at the same time i wonder if it would be a good idea that he spent time with some of the children who are severe so that he might be able to help those children.we went to look at it just for the summer,but they told me if i was not going to keep him in there for the following year,they would not hold a spot for him.well that is the only summer school program in our district.ok one thing that i dont like about the school is that they have padded room.and it is vary small.i understand that this is only used for children who are a threat to them selfs or others,and i asked if my child biting another child would be a cause to put him in that room,they said no and that the preschool children dont even see that room,but if him biting a child is not a threat then what is?i will be honest, i do feel like we are being pushed into this.that is another reason why im having a hard time making a decision.im not sure if this would be good for him or not,right now lil guy is in a gen ed school,but only in the special ed class.does not go to any gen ed class's.he has made so much progress since school has started in september that im not sure he should leave.the teacher that he has is well i will just say that she is something else.but he is doing well with her.should i put him in the school where he will get every thing that he needs or should i keep fighting to get him what he needs where he is at now with "typical" children?so as you all see im lost just wondering what every ones thoughts are on this one.oh i should say that where he is now,it was like pulling teeth trying to get just a eval for ot.luv ya much ladys!!hope every one is having a good day!
