Son on the spectrum told me yesterday that he gets "angry" in the hallway in school. As always, I had to ask 100 questions to get the story out of him, and I'm still not sure I'm right, but it seems that he gets nervous in social studies and science without an aide which makes him angry in the halls after the classes. No, I don't understand the relationship either. Here's a backstory: Son was in Cognitively Delayed classes for years. He wasn't really CD, but he had some delays in social skills and life skills and was a tad behind in school and needed A LOT of help to do his work. This class, and teacher, was actually a fantastic fit for him. It took him to where he is now. Well, he can do the work now alone, thanks to his wonderful, fantastic ex-teacher and ex-aide so he was upgraded to Learning Disability (LD) and the aide is gone. He's fine with no aide in every class except social studies and science. I talked to the principal today. He's really nice. Son is getting an A in one class and a B in the other class so there is no justification for an aide to be there. I agree. He's going to talk to my son to see if he doesn't like the commotion in the halls or why he gets nervous in these two classes. When asked, son said math and reading were "easy" and that computer tech was fine too. He's worried just about these two classes and I know he has nice teachers. Marg, my son is very much like an Aspie. What do you think could be going on. You're so good at figuring out these kids. Son is doing really well in his classes--all A's and B's, however, as a typical ASDer, he thinks that if he goes from an "A" to an "A-" his grade dropped...lol. And he worries a lot more than your average neurotypical kid. Help?
