    Default Update on ds at school

    So from my last post about problems with ds at school, I had a very tactless teacher of my ds telling me (in front of other parents and my ds) that he just isn't normal, there is something wrong with him. She was quite mean about it. So she is sending off a referral. I wanted your opinion on what she may think he is if not normal. I can explain the things she has written about him, but for now I will get your opinion.

    He has a number of compulsive behaviors, eye blinking, rapid hand movement, he is unable to sit still for any length of time, his very rapid eye movement while sitting on the mat.

    That's her words she has used. Aso I will get what you think first then explain what I know as his mum.
    Cheers.

    Could you link your last post.



    Please report the teacher to the principal. It is no way acceptable to tell a child he is not normal especially in front of other kids and parents. It can cause life long anxiety problems.

    Her doing referral is a good thing especially if you go to your gp and get referral done too. He will get help quicker if it cone from two sources.

    I think that is the link.

    Im happy to go to whoever she wants to send him too. Just want to know who.

    He is now very touchy about what she said, breaking my heart when he asked me if he is a horrible child.

    Even if he is on the spectrum or has an attention disorder it is disgusting that she said he is not normal to you, especially in front of your DS. I would be furious.

    To be honest sounds like she's the one that is special needs! I'm speechless at her unprofessionalism and her lack of respect to your DSs privacy.

    My nephew is autistic and he had trouble sitting still for long. By all means follow up with a specialist, is he needs help it will be good for him to get it. If there is something different about him just remember is doesn't change who is he, just how he learns.

    Default Update on ds at school

    ASD at a guess. He sounds like is most likely on the spectrum.

    The teacher is incredibly tactless in her way of telling you he needs assessment
