    Default Special needs kids


    I have a special needs child somewhere on the autistic spectrum probably auspergers. Sounds a lot like the little girl who was having the fits. My dd did that as a toddler. We tried to place her in special ed. she went to special ed preschool but because they were overloaded by dd was shoved out of the system because she was intelligent and they said her disability was not affecting her ability to learn.



    She went to regualar Kindergarten where she was beaten up every day shoved down the stairs, pushed off the stage the final straw was when her face was scraped across the asphalt on the playground. We tried Christian private school for six weeks but that school was full of kids who had been expelled from public school DD was even more abused by the kids there.



    By the way is seemed that the admin. in both schools were completely powerless to control the bullies. Special kids are easy targets.



    We started homeschooling her. She really thrives under structure and she knows just what to expect in homeschool. With the homeschooling and structure her melt downs arevery few. When she does get overwhelmed at home she can stop for a while and take a break. We have a wonderful church and our childrens pastor has an autistic child she has created programs that allow these children to participate with the other chidlren in the church activites as well as educate the other children about special needs and how they can help.



    Homeschooling does not allow me to work out of the home so I have had to become very frugal I will send that info in another post. I think having special needs children is directly connected to this frugal group because special needs kids are expensive and we need all the help we can get.

    Tracy in va, Yhnks the power above that your child has a mom like you. I have an adopted son ,age 10, in the 4th grade (the new school thought he was in the second grade),outgoing, intelligent,personality plus,I have just changed schools w/ him(public to private christian for 2 weeks)He is into Yugo and Narco-a Japanese cartoon,cards,videos,movies but the public schoolcould not understand this. They could not control the bullies who picked on him-one boy had been helt back for 2 years and was 2 yrs larger.He was street smart and could run past my son in gym, clip him,causing my son to roll. No teacher interfered.
    So far the christian school has been the answer. It has classes thru the 12 th grade.
    You are in my thoughts.

    The best school that I found for my oldest was a charter school. Tho

    he was never a target that I know of at any school he was in. He was

    in special ed all the time but was never in a "special ed" room. But

    was mainstreamed with the other kids. Once I got him into the charter

    school he did get better services and the teachers for the most part

    were willing to give him less work. For example in math he had to do

    everyother problem instead of all of them. If it was writing and the

    teacher wanted 3 pages at first he only had to do one because that was

    very very very hard for him. But as he got better she upped it to a

    page and a half or two pages depending on the topic. In high school it

    was the same but there he got a laptop to use to do his wringing on

    and that really helped him as his writing is so bad he can't even read

    it.

    I am not sure of what state you guys live in, however your child should not have been sent form the program if she had a diagnosis. Doesnt your stat have a PPCD program? Preschool Program for Children with Disabilities? You take your child in and they should be tested based on your concerns. The school district should send out this information with your other children every year. It usually happens before summer. Also, there is the Keep Pace program in Texas. Keep Pace comes out as soon as you have a developmental problem. They help special needs kids get into PPCD programs as well.
