    I would suggest doing a search on fb to see if there's a parent's of ASD children support group in your region (a closed group is best). The one I'm a part of for my region is a wealth of information and the parents are really supportive.

    Welcome to this group by the way

    I feel so jealous. I can't find any good ASD pages on Facebook. I'm part of a big generic one for my state and it's not really great. I don't ever post in there

    I'm feeling greatful.

    My dad attends a dog park and has a few friends there and they are so lovely one works for a low profit org and she offered help with DS as she works for autism part. So I have rang and booked app. For when we get back. This place also helps with bills etc too. Hopefully they can help us.

    Hubby needs give his 2 weeks notice but I'm confused when he should. He has holidays up until 3rd December so is aid maybe give 2 weeks then .

    Got called up to school. Mr4 lost his bananas and just completely shut down. Ended up swaying him to go back in the classroom but we will see how he goes.
    He was in PDHPE and that teacher isn't the most patient bloke around. From what I can gather, Mr4 couldn't do what he was asking so tried to do something different. Teacher got cranky and gave him times outs and Mr4 got defiant and then yeh, he just shut down.
    I asked Mr4 and he said "I tried to do it but it was too hard and I told him and he said I don't care". I doubt that's what was said but that's how he interpreted it.
    When he went back to class, it was back with the principal and PDHPE had finished. The k-2 class has sport after lunch with the same teacher again but principal said she will keep him with her as she is taking the older kids for art.

    @Ahalfdozen that's disappointing that the PE teacher has upset your DS

    Being a small school, this teacher will get to know your DS better as time goes on and he will hopefully realise that he needs to change his approach to get more out of your DS.

    An update on our current situation - DS did his last transition visit on Monday. The school are totally ready for him and he's transitioned really well. DS's OT and speechie visited the school last week and they were blown away by how well equipped the support unit is. It's reassuring that they were as impressed as we are.

    OT said what may be challenging for us next year is DS's behaviour outside of schooling. He said kids like DS often go well in the structured school environment for the day, but when they get home from school they can be quite challenging as they've been good all day - they unleash when they get home. I've heard this before, so it comes as no surprise!

    DS received an invite to the local Special Children's Xmas Party this year. It's tonight. At this stage we plan to go. I'm hoping it won't be too 'full on' for all of us (crowds/parking/noisy environment), but I think we should try for DS's sake. All the invited children get a present from Santa, and I know DS would be thrilled about that.

    This teacher, thankfully, hasn't had his contract renewed for next year here as there isn't enough work for him. My son will have his current preschool teacher, as his full time teacher next year which works out perfectly.

    My son does what you described. He tries to hold it all in during the day and let's loose at home as that's his "safe place". I would rather that though, so that we can comfort him and get him through it rather than teachers trying to, which I know they don't have time for either.

    The special Christmas party sounds great though
