I got to meet with Tigger's teacher and see the books she is using with him this year. We came up with a few strategies that she is going to try in the next week or so to see if we can lower his anxiety. He has been complaining about how loud the school is and how one of his classmates crying feels like knives in his ears. She is going to request noise canceling headphones for him to use. He has been having perfect days behaviorally until around noon. We compared all of his charts and realized that his behavior falls apart right after his gym/art time with the regular ed class, continues to be poor through lunch/recess with the regular ed class and recovers after he has been in the sped room again for 20-30 minutes. She is going to set up an alternative activity for him to do during gym/art (just a 1:1 with an admin staff or other 'fun' adult). After a few days, we are going to see if that helps. This could all be sensory overload and anxiety. (Of course, with the larger room there is a lot more peer conflict and it is taking the form of threats to beat each other up. Tigger keeps asking her what happens if he HAS to fight cause there isn't staff there to protect him -- he so clearly feels unsafe there. He is safe there but he wasn't in previous years.) His goal remains the Learning Disability (LD)/EMH room at our local junior high. Let's all keep our fingers crossed and say some prayers!!
