Right. The parent stated asperger's and also stated high functioning. Since asperger's doesn't include cognitive and speech delays, an actual medical diagnosis statistically happens after the age of 5 and often not diagnosed at all until far older. It's not at all common in any state for a child to be diagnosed with aspergers at that young of an age.

If a child had severe autism, in most cases and schools, those children only spend a short amount of time in a inclusion setting at the Pre K age, and the rest of the time in a self contained class. That child would never be or make it in a Pre K setting without supports, and a teacher does not count as support. A teacher has the whole student body of the class to attend to and teach, the child has to have supports. There are some parents however who feel inclusion will most benefit such a child, but the peers being typical would 'wear off' on that child, but that never is the end result, solely due to the nature of the disability. Those with autism need supports, not only academically, but socially as well. And then there are parents out there who refuse an IEP/ special ed due to what they perceive as the long term stigma of it. This more happens with those considered 'high functioning'.

So without more detailed info, very little of the stated article makes much sense. Anyone who does have a child in special ed knows what NCLB is, and the parent miss-used what it actually is right off the bat in this article.

aah, most schools block certain web sites??? Nice try. I already shown I don't live in TN, so who would really care what I do for a living, but most computers are at a desk. Mine happens to be on my counter top.
With that way of thinking, Winnipeg must work for a school. He dominates the autism forum showing he has more time on his hands than anyone here.

There's something not right here. friend and ric99 seem to be working together. Why who knows, but they seem to relish attacking random posters and ad nothing to the discussion.

You are a LIAR! U are NOT a parent!! I have NEVER encountered another parent with the attitude that u have and I have been around, lady!! Even if u disagree with how the mother handled this .. still another parent offers support or alternatives to one another on what to do.. I have NEVER encountered another parent that bashes another for how they handled a situation. This mother is a low income single mother who really needs help on what or how to deal with her child .. and the way the school treated her child is wrong.. at least this young mother has enough sense to know that much!!
WOW I'm not the only one.

So are you saying your child had no vaccines? No vaccines while recouperating from premature birth?

Parents, your child will suffer because it will be held back by the retard in its class. Insist that the retard is placed in a retard class so as not to inhibit your child's growth.

Normal kids in one class. Retards I'm another. Why should your kids suffer because this woman's DNA failed to produce a normal kid. She wants the rest of your kids to suffer like hers does.

Should we guess what class you were in, or is it far too obvious?

Dayton you are not welcome in this conversation... I would hate to know a person with such a cold heart. These children deserve every right that other children get. As long as they have the proper care, such as an attendant, there shouldn't be an issue... The typically attend classes such as pe and music and then are in classes more geared towards their learning ability at other times. God made these children them way they are for a reason... If you ever had the pleasure of knowing a special needs child, and opened your heart, you would know that they can be some of the most joyous human beings to be around. More than likely because they don't realize their are people as heartless and cruel as you in this world. So goodbye.

I'm being you Richard B. I read in the bed wetting forum you had been kicked off Topix for behavior. Not surprised the way you act. So have you turned 14 yet? What's 99 your I.Q.?

Sorry Canadian Mom I pretty much agree with friend... as to who you are, I don't know, don't care.... but Most of the people on here have been band wagoners until friend came along... I just think there is more to this story than any of us know... sorry

Do any of you have children that are autistic? THen shut the hell up!!!! Unless you have lived that life you don't know anything. My neice is and she has a severe case of it. Yet she is very smart.She is very capable of going on outings. This school screwed up. The parents really need to file a siut against them. The school has special education then they have special education teachers and helpers for the classes. There is NO reason this child could not go.

Question did the child have an IEP? If not the school did nothing wrong so quit complaining.

1) having a niece doesn't qualify as 'living that life' and 2) one individual child and their abilities cant be compared to another child's abilities. Because your niece could, it doesn't mean another can.
3) Although schools often do have special ed Pre K, it doesn't appear this was a Pre K special ed class and there is no evidence the child even had an IEP. And 'helpers' don't qualify as an educated in a disability Para. 4) when schools get sued, have any idea where that funding comes from? Tax payers and because of that, tax payers get real annoyed when a parent sues without good cause and it gives special ed and children in general an unwanted attitude of those of the general community which happens in every community no matter what state you live in.
