hi.We started noticing three years ago that she wasn't developing like the other children her age. Her self esteem was shattered when she realized she couldn't do like the other children and we decided to have her tested. She was just diagnosed with high functioning autism. She is very emotional and will be devistated when she hears that she isn't going to the second grade. In my heart I know its the right thing to do but I know she will be crushed. Like other children she HATES school. We start school in about three weeks and I need to tell her. When I tell her I want it to be positive. Can anyone give me advise on how to tell her with a positive spin on it.thank you.
