Today we have an official diagnosis that my son is a standard Autistic. He has attended a 6 weeks program for delayed children, and we finally have some answers.
When he is done with the program, he will be integrated back in to his regular pre-k classroom. Before he was referred to the program for delays, there was a lot of curriosity from the children and parents who attended his regular pre-k. It is apparent in public situations that he struggles.
As a result, I was going to type up a little "fun fact" sheet about my son with the definition of Autism, and to please be patient if they are wittiness to his meltdowns. I feel like it would help to keep the parents from coming up with their own conclusions, as well help their children understand why he is different.
I am just wondering if is is something you have done? What would you include ( if you were in my position), and how would you feel on the receiving end?
Thanks you all so much.
