I have worked at a local bank for 4 years and they DO offer FMLA. My question is does anyone have any experience with using FMLA for your autistic child? I'm not sure if that would qualify or how it works exactly. They gave me some examples, like if your child has asthma, and has an asthma attack at school, if you have to leave to pick him up, or take him to the dr. you could use FMLA time... my son has lots of dr appointments, but I wouldnt know what to say or what to put on those forms... "My son sometimes freaks out and I have to take him to a quite place and sing to him." I mean really what else would I say. "Sometimes my son has "bad days"." or "He's in "his own little world" today and can't participate" ... any info would be greatly appreciated!
