Next time you think your Aspie is giving you a hard time, think about living in a world where your every instinct is reprimanded, ridiculed, and chastised. ...a world where people teach by talking and that is not how you learn best. Who's having a hard time?

Neurotypicals,your behaviors
are often the cause of ours.

Autism requires an approach
--a kind, calm,creative flexible one.

If you don't have those traits to offer,don't work with us.
Don't teach us.
Don't counsel us.

I'm just sayin'. It won't go well.

ASD mommas be like:
"Please, please, please,
new teacher,
be kind and calm and patient
with my kid.
If you are,
I will be.
Deal??

Good Teachers Know.. that the ASD child who is a model student may have frightening meltdowns and express extreme anxiety at home related to the school experience. When social, sensory and academic demands become too much to cope with, the student will let it all out where it is safe to do so: with his family in his house. I don't take it personally, but I do want to know how to help make things better, and I never insinuate the behaviour is a result of bad parenting.
