My 11 year old autistic son got suspended for hitting another student

My 11 year old autistic son got suspended for hitting another student. Other student was bullying my son . He tried to walk away and asked them to leave him alone . Kept teasing him. My son ended up reacting.

Do u think it was unfair for my son geting a suspended for reacting. When he is on the spectrum and finds it hard to control emotions ????

Call an emergency IEP meeting. Get a advocate

Yes, I do. Did you explain to staff how your son reacts to situations like this ? If so, what are they going to do to prevent it from happening again ?

That is an emotionally appropriate reaction to a person who is harassing so I wouldn’t blame him- Id say next time he go to the nurses office and say I need to go home because the school is making me sick- then call the principal.

I’m down on schools- now so constructive advice isn’t something I can give- now;). Hang in there...

The OP lives in Tasmania and I think IEP is strictly American. Just talk to someone at the school and get some kind of written response for future reference.

Not surprised this happened, it sad how the school thinks they solved the problem too. It goes to show that they didn't care to get more information. It also shows how they don't understand our kids. I'm glad your son stood up for himself, someone had to, obviously the school didn't.
You need to have a meeting with the principal, the evil turd and his parents, otherwise it will keep happening.
