difficult child has a teacher and a para in one of his classrooms that drink coffee all day long. He has complained many times that they "stink". I finally got out of him what he means by that and he says they have stinky breath. We have come to realize that he finds "coffee breath" quite offensive. He has gotten into trouble because when they get close to him and talk, he simply says "You Stink!" When they don't back away he causes a scene and makes sure everyone in the room knows "They stink". Yesterday in class, he told the teacher to "get away from me with your stinky coffee breath!" He got sent into the hallway with the threat of having to go to the Principal's office if he didn't stop. On the way out, he lathered his hands up with sanitizer and said "There, now I have something better to smell!" on his way out the door. When he came back in the teacher and para avoided him and he worked quietly on the assignment. Then they sent an email to me, his SpEd case manager, and the principal. I simply forwarded it on to his school counselor that agrees that his sensory issues are real and that the staff are handling him all wrong when it comes to smells. She even suggested to me that maybe the teachers should suck on mints during that class. I even CC'd the case manager and principal so they know the counselor and I have discussed this and that WE agree they are handling it wrong. Time for some TEACHER EDUCATION about sensory issues.
