My smart guy...

The lady that run and oversees the autistic preschools in the area talked to me today. She thinks that Parker would benefit more from a typical preschool and not the autistic preschool. She thinks his skills are great and he wants to interact with other kids. She thinks that he is the most high functioning in the class and she thinks that it's holding him back. She said she wants his influence to be typical kids and not the lower functioning ones. I'm not sure what to think about all that. He may be starting head start now a couple days a week. She thinks he might have even been ready for kindergarten with an aid. Wow. I'm supposed to be meeting with her and his teacher soon to figure out what to do about this. I'm really excited!

Wow! GREAT news! I wish you luck! Remember- YOU know him best. I know you'll find the best place for him...whatever that is.

That is good news! My triplets went to a regular preschool just so they would pick up more social norms, etc. and not bad habits from the autistic kids that also had bad behaviors....and Parker is so much more advanced than my boys...just in that he can talk, for one thing. I bet he will love it!
