what am i going to do? right now i am so afraid they are going to press charges(i know just paranoid)bu ti would be po'd if i were her parents. he told me he meant to stab her but not to hurt her. she was pestering him to stop doing something and so he tried to shut her up. no excuse but how do you tell another parent that it was on purpose but not to harm? he said everything was bothering him today so here again i think sensory is playing a bigger role then they think. talked to the asst teacher yesterday and he admitted they are not using him like they should. that i need to suggest on next tues bip for them to utilize him to remove difficult child if he is disruptive before a meltdown and to also us him to use more creative ways to assess his retention of material. bless him for having the guts to talk to me as most staff are afraid of the principle to answer my ?'s. so i have a ?. do i ask for him to be pulled out of the regular classroom? i obviously do not want him to harm another child. we are a small school district so there is no small Special Education class just the resource room and teachers to help those with-reading and math. difficult child is such an extreme for them. we have a therapy appointment tomorrow and i guess i will ask her for immediate suggestions. i think i will keep him home all day tomorrow but of course i might get a call later that he is suspended for longer anyway. we are nearing the 10 days but heck there are only 7 wks left. ok thanks all for listening.
