My five year old son exhibits a hard time dealing with transitioning from what he is doing to start something else on some days. (he loves learning) When he is having one of those days he gets very upset. He mainly cries and has started talking back. He really is out of character when this happens. Can having an autistic child in the class be too overwhelming and contributing to this? What if the staff is not equipped with how to balance the personalities. They are not certified in this area. I questioned the owner of the center did she think that the my son was on target and prepared for Kindergarten and she said yes, she thinks so, but now his teacher and I have a strained communication since I asked. I did not want it to be a question of her abilities but it came up while specifically talking about another subject matter, my sons crying. I just go on our own senses in what he talks about and knows. He loves the educational sites I guide him to, but at school, no computers and that's fine, but he is in my belief needing more stimulation now. We are readying him for kindergarten and he will be leaving this preschool to a more homeschooled based until school starts in September. I just wanted some feedback and help with the situation of the crying and can other children,no matter their abilities, truly generate certain behaviors that is out of sorts for another child and whats the best way to handle it all. OH, and the teacher has told the class that the autisic child does think differently in a way that did not seem to bother my son. So I am glad she explained autism to help the kids understand.
