Today's IEP Meeting -- We've got the problem child :(
Mon 7:13pm -- We had the king's IEP meeting today.
After 10+ years of living on Autism Avenue these meetings still take a lot out of wifey and me.
It's never easy to hear that your kid is the problem child in a classroom full of kids on the non verbal / low end of the spectrum, but that's exactly what we heard today...
His majesty has truly been a terror at school these past 3-4 months with lots of PBs (problem behaviors) including hitting, spitting, flicking his saliva at folks, and pulling off his pants.
Basically on the days when he doesn't have seizures and naps he's the worst behaved.
The school is trying to break thru the behaviors as best they can but they're not having much success.
This might not be the right school for him anymore and he's kinda aging out of the school anyway, but we don't seem to have a lot of other options.
We'll look at other schools and programs this month and throughout the summer, but we kinda already know what's out there and none of them are truly a good fit for Kyle.
I know he might not be able to help some (most?) of the PBs but he's really make things hard on himself.
All I can say without a doubt is that...AUTISM SUCKS!!!
