School Day Woes

Posted: September 13, 2012 in Autism

You are not going to cure my son. He is not going to snap out of it.
Sending home reports that he will not participate is something that I could have told you.
He will learn by repetition. He will learn by repetition. He will learn by repetition.
It has taken this long for us to get him to know that he has to do work at school. When we told you that homework is not a good thing, we sort of meant it. When the school day is over, he is done. Homework, with many years of attempts, brings nothing s but anger, frustration and tears. We call this a meltdown. It happens when you overload my son.
When he gets in trouble at school for not participating, he puts up another wall. A wall that no songs or nice words are going to remedy. He is very intelligent. It is the getting him to communicate part that we want to work on. We don’t want to go back and have to relearn because you think you can do this.
