Forgetting and lying

Forgetting and lying

My 10 year old son (ASD and ADHD) has started lying about stuff and/or forgetting to do little things (changing his clothes, brushing his teeth, picking up his toys, flushing the toilet, etc).
Once we figure out he lied to us or hasn’t done the daily task and we ask him about it he responds with “I thought I did that already” or “oh, I forgot”...is he really forgetting or is he just being lazy?

Any parents out there that can relate? Im open to suggestions on how to handle it.

Iep amendment on class ratio

Iep amendment on class ratio

Has anyone ever had an amendment done on class ratio approved without needing or waiting on a whole new evaluation? I know amendments can be made on certain things without a meeting. But, I wasn't sure if that includes class ratio or just things like transportation or services added.

I don’t know the answer, but was curious what your requested class ratio is and how it’s worded? I didn’t know you could do that

Any successes in matching ASD kids to create meaningful friendships?

Any successes in matching ASD kids to create meaningful friendships?

Hi all, 9 year old son. Like most, struggles with social interactions and therefore very isolated at school. Others will play with him if he asks or if mom/dad set up a play date....but never been invited to a play date from them or a birthday party.

Have often though I need to be more aggressive in searching out others… read more

Childproofing kitchens?

Childproofing kitchens?

Hello MAT friends. We are moving in a few weeks, and our new home has a gas stove with buttons and controls all at hip level. We currently have electric stove and all buttons and controls are on top toward back against the wall.

My son is going through a stage right now where he LOVES opening and closing the dishwasher and the oven, and pushing all the bottons on the dishwasher. When we did a walkthru of the new place he was pushing all the buttons on the oven and having a field day.

I am considering getting my little 3yo girl into equine therapy. Her BSC thinks it's a very good idea, and a friend in Mexico told me it has done wonders for her kid. What has your experience been? Did it help your kid?
