I'd like to know or get advise on what could b a suitable punishment to give to my roommate for roommate s son who has slight autism that threw a fit in school n got suspended for it over poke Mon cards? She's stressing over it.
Sorry, but this isn't really a great place for that sort of advice. We are artisans, not judges.
Anna, this board is for people to discuss their every day lives. There is nothing wrong with people asking for personal advice here.
I guess I lack to see why the school would suspend him for having a fit. Autistc children throw fits when they don't understand something or can't figure out how else to show their frustrations. The school should be equipped to handle that and suspension as a result is ridiculous. She shouldn't be mad at her son in this case, she should be raising a stink with the school. Having worked in the school system here, (I'm not sure if you're in the U.S or elsewhere) but in the U.S. almost all schools have plans in place for special education students to help deal with these outburts and disruptions that occur. Suspension would only be resorted to if the student caused harm to another person. I wouldn't worry about punishing him over that, I'd worry about raising all sorts of hell with the school though.
We'd love to know what you think - Leave your reply right away
