letter from school

november 24 2007

Got a letter in the mail from the school of my autistic son.

I'm getting a bit irritated by the way the school acts.

They don't realise that laying pressure on us doesn't change the handicap of my son.

What do they want us to do?
Hit him with a stick and have him run in front of us all the way to school?

We don't have a car, so we can't bind his legs and arms and carry him the car, drive in front of the schoolgate and let him out, right in the hands of that coordinator.

All those years we have been motivating, threatening, merchandising, begging, to go to school.

Thinsg went right, untill he saw that one of the bullies went to fight with another boy.
Yep, fight.
Like fists, black eye.

He has seen his brother come home after he was attacked in the street when he stood up for a friend who was robbed.

So I can completely understand why he doesn't feel safe at school.

The bullie has free reign... so who wants to live there.
Certainly not an autistic boy who can't see problems coming, and who's always the target, because he yells so interesting.
