Is This Autistic Behavior

Hello everyone. I dopped Kemp off at his first day of school (spec.ed). He did not seem to mind that I was leaving! This is the first time that he would be some where w/out me! I was shocked I wanted to cry!!! I have to say that he did go to this school last year but I stayed with him in the class. I was just curiuos if this is common for autistic kids. He is just under three.

Re: Is This Autistic Behavior

Ok when I picked him from school he was still fine. The teacher said she would be putting a report on how the child did that day everyday for the first two weeks. In her report today didn't even sound like my son! She said Kemp answered when asked a ? he doesn't uasully answer. Is she being kind? I am wondering if this is right. Has anybody had a experience like this before? Any comments or advice is appreciated.

Re: Is This Autistic Behavior

My son acts totally differently in school. He won't do ANYTHING for me like he does for those teachers!!!! They had a page full of words that he's said last year and out of about 40 of them, he's said 3 at home!!!!! (He's now 4)
Whatever works!!!!
Good Luck!!!

Re: Is This Autistic Behavior

I know that Devin's first day of school was really hard for me. I went to drop him off,I walked him inside, and he immediately saw the other kids, and ran to play, after a few seconds, he looked to me and said, "Oh , Mom, you're still here? I'm gonna' go play now, okay?" I was happy tht I had taught him the confidence to just get right in there and play with kids that he had never met, but I was crushed that he never even looked back as I left. The little trooper!! I will never forget when I went to pick him up. As I walked past a group of kids, one pointed to Devin and said "it was that kid, mommy" UT OH! what had he done? well, it seems that having a preschooler that can read can be a dangerous thing. He read the word "Pull" on the fire alarm. OOOOOPS, guess we should have covered that one at home ahead of time. Devin was his usual self at school. But as he has gotten older he has learned that school is different, expectations are different, and he HAS to be different at school than at home. Don't all kids? Be proud Mom, you have taught him well. As far as answering questions that the teacher has asked of him, the other kids were doing it, right? He wants to be a part of what is going on, and that's a great thing.

Re: Is This Autistic Behavior

I think its typical of any child. My son started pre-school this week and kept waving at us to leave, 'Go Mom, I Stay!!' My daughter, who is autistic, is happy when she is at school also. Its just a kid thing!
