Kendal is 4 1/2 now and attending a summer day camp where he is doing well thanks to the wonderful teachers there. He had spent the last 2 school years in special ed preschool, so his autism was really not an issue. This is our first experience with him in a setting with non special ed kids and it breaks my heart to see him shunned by his classmates. One boy last week asked me if "he is regular" when I was there to pick him up and when I asked what he meant he said "you know, normal". Kendal is high functioning and very social but exhibits odd behaviors such as pretending he is a train and making chugging noises repeatedly in front of his classmates, amongst other things. Although he can't verbalize his feelings about this yet, I know he is picking up on the fact that the kids don't like him much. When and how do I start explaining to him and preparing him for what is inevitably going to happen? He will be attending pre K this fall and I am fearful that what I have observed this summer will continue to escalate. Thanks for any advice!
