    That's a tough one that your other kids are mates! Maybe she should just start taking her kid to school by herself if the bus is too hard for her kid. It's ok to expect understanding with special needs but as you say the ' needs' of the other kids are just as valid. It's also tough when someone annoys the hell out of you and wants to catch up. She get it eventually !!

    Sounds like the mum may also be on the spectrum? Lacks social skills perhaps? Just a theory

    Can you speak to the school? My question is when did the Mum have a chance to "have words" with your dd without you present? I'd be worried about this as it's rather inappropriate especially as your dd is so little (8 is still quite little in my book!). I'd be chatting to the teacher and ask their opinion on the best way to manage it. I mostly feel sorry for your dd who is now having issues on her bus ride. I hope it can all get sorted out to everyones benefit.

    I just told dd1 to sit somewhere else if she didn't mind and if this girl continues to bother her then I am going to have a talk to this girls mum to make it stop. She was all smiles after that.

    I am thinking the same as Minnie...it sounds as if the mum might be on the spectrum too and is struggling herself.

    I would approach it firm but polite...

    "do NOT talk to my DD, talk to me. DD has no way of knowing that your DD 'needed' that seat as she does move and sit in difference places around the bus. My DD will agree not to sit in that special seat but you must speak to your DD about moving about to follow DD and taking her bag."

    She should have approached you and told you the whole situation. She should never have approached your child about it.

    But yes, Aspegger's people often get fixated on certain things. For example, my DS1 has a stool (just like the other 4 stools we have) but the wood looks a bit different. And he has to have that stool, if he doesn't get that stool it triggers a total meltdown. I have never seen anyone so obsessive over an inanimate object in my life....apart from my other ASD child of course

    She could very well be on the spectrum but I think she just lacks social skills and manners.

    And to clarify it is dd1 and her dd2 that are friends.

    And I have been thinking about talking to the teacher about this to make sure she doesn't have future words at school with my dd1.

    The school has heaps of special needs kids so dd1 is quite understanding of them.
