my 7yr old son has high functioning Aspergers syndrome. his school is aware of this and he did excellent last year! now this year he is a first grader, and his teacher is driving me crazy! She rides my son really bad, she tells me its because of the great potential she sees in him. I have attempted to explain to her (several times) that he shuts down when you are to hard on him. She just wont listen! I have gone to his principal over this several times and nothing seems to be helping. His teacher has told me she is not familiar with children that have autism or aspergers, and I have offered to meet with her to discuss the avenues that work the best with Zane. I met with her at the parent teacher and thought we had resolved all the issues. But Zane is coming home upset nearly everyday, and is not wanting to go to school any more! I am considering pulling him from this school. My husband says I'm over reacting and that I need to just calm down. Please advise!!
