Now that we have the offical diagnosis we have to figure out a way to let difficult child classmates in on it. difficult child's teacher has been wonderful and we love her to death. She (even before the diagnosis) allowed difficult child time to recoop after "meltdowns" or if it appeared that something was bothering him giving him the option of having "quiet time" or "special time with a toy or something calming to him". The class has picked up on difficult child being a little different. She's tried to explain that difficult child has some "issues" that we're trying to figure out and she expects them to be understanding and not treat him differently. With that being said I've suggested having a pizza party the end of this month. I'll bring pizza for lunch for the class and have a difficult child day. I've ordered the book "all cats have Asperger's". From what I've heard it's catered to his age group. Any ideas? I've been explaining it to difficult child slowly so it's not too much to soak in at one time.
