When you get down to it though, this is what pre-adolescent boys are about, isn't it? They're prickly, confrontational, too clever along with thinking they're even more clever than that, moody and full of outbursts. I'm sincerely happy that communication home via log sheets is open enough that I know specifics about bad days. There was even a solicitation for suggestions/ideas so that we can have a unified approach when dealing with problem behaviors. It's hard to imagine some districts being willing to listen to successful strategies from home as opposed to dogmatic adherence to the autism therapy theory du jour.
Here's hoping for a good weekend and a fresh start on Monday.
