Came across this on twitter the other day: A teacher gave an assignment to the students of their class to "write an essay on how people with Aspergers should be treated in light of Newtown." This was locally. Now also consider, one of the students in this class has a brother who has Autism and the teacher knows this. I would also like to know has anyone seen any dramatic changes in these past few days in how your children are being dealt with in school with any behaviors? I know I have. Mr. Busy had an incident, not a violent one in any way, but he made an inappropriate comment to another child in conversation and he was written up and now has ISS due to it. Previously this would have been dealt with very differently. He should have not said it, this I stand behind but the school is acting much more harshly across the board on EVERYTHING no matter how small it is and I'm wondering if anyone else is seeing this in their schools too?
