School get it wrong again.

28 Mar


Do you remember a few weeks back I wrote a post under the name  SCHOOL  FAIL OUR CHILDREN OVER AND OVER AGAIN. It was a rant at my son’s school where my nephew Alfie who is Autistic also attends. He is six years old and was exclude from school for the second time this year. Why? Nothing other then a cop out. The school are unable to handle his autistic ways. Well here’s the latest! Alfie has yet again been excluded from school for the third time. How disgusting I find this. He has been excluded for yet again silliness that really could be dealt with in better ways. Not only for Alfie but for the school. Is this it? Is there not a better way to deal with this? It seems not. The best way forward for this school is not to look at the problem and find a way to better deal with it. It is easier for them to brush the on going problem under the carpet and hope it will go away. This makes me fell not only angry but I fell a great deal of sadness that this school, the one I chose for my children to attend can act in such a low and selfish manner. I’m ashamed to say my children attend this school and yet again it has made me look at my given options all over again. Come on! Why is this happening? Yes his not the easiest of children to deal with but his not the hardest by far. STOP EXCLUDING AUTISTIC CHILDREN AND LEARN HOW TO BETTER EDUCATE THEM.

    What does his IEP and/or behavior plan say about how such problems will be handled? If there IS no behavior plan, then that needs to be addressed. If there IS, and exclusion was in the plan, then the parent had to agree to it and sign it. It may be a good idea to find an advocate and address this issue at a staffing.

    I completely understand as I have seen the same situation myself a number of times. My son who tested as a high likely for AS was completely misunderstood by the school. I was told he simply did not want to learn. I now homeschool him and we are making progess.
