So I have been out of the loop for a bit! Sorry about that! A lot has happened in a short amount of time. For three days in a row last week our aspie's school called letting us know that he had thrown things, ripped up work, & just in general been pretty disruptive/uncooperative so for two of those I had to come pick him up early. On the third day, after having an "I don't know what the hell to do!?!" talk with Jayden that involved me just sitting him down & having a frank honest somewhat adult discussion all Andy Griffith style. Needless to say I felt really good about the talk & he really seemed to understand but when he told me after school that he did great I wanted to verify so I called his teacher to ask before she left for the day. What she told me was that when he came to school he was a bit hyper & started the day by touching some of the furry classroom pillows to his face (he likes the texture of fleece or super soft stuff) When she saw this she said to me that she decided after the last three days being as hard has they had been she "Just needed a break from him for the day." So she sent him to the special needs class for the whole day.
