Behavioral Challenges In School

Behavioral Challenges In School

My seven year old is having a lot of trouble in school. He was diagnosed with autism ( aspergers ) last year though we had known he had it since he was two. He has an iep and behavior plans in place but nothing seems to be helping. Every year gets worse. He is very bright and intelligent so they are not willing to add any more services to his iep than are already in place. The issues he is having in school are all linked to his aspergers, emotional outbursts, crying , not keeping his hands… read more

If your insurance will cover private services, I would try that route if you haven't done so already. Perhaps he could benefit from ABA, occupational therapy, and/or psych services.

Ladies, take a look at this. An ABA provider that accepts the Medicaid card. They called me but we are already using someone else. Let me know what happens:

we are going through this now. we requested the behavior intervention specialist be brought in for evaluation and a FBA (functional behavior assessment), and requested a meeting with the director of sp.ed. and the behaviorist to address concerns about his sp.ed. teacher, lack of communication, lack of structure and schedule, improper and unnecessary restraining, and utter disregard of our advice and requests for our son. we had that meeting yesterday and boy did they take notes, make copies of everything I have, and assured me this will be handled with the school's administration and his teacher. They were not pleased and will be contacting us personally for updates and to schedule continual meetings until we get this straight and our son is receiving the the exact care and services he needs. they also assured us that restraint would never be used again. (not only he diagnosed with ASD but also claustrophobic and afraid of confinement) don't let them tell you it can't happen and contact autism speaks for help finding an advocate.
