School Suspension and Autism, A Mother’s Perspective

Jake is five years old. I am on a business trip out of town. My husband just called and told me the school suspended Jake for hitting his teacher on his first day of Kindergarten. We discuss our options. We decide to have Jake go to daycare Thursday and Friday for full days. Al is going to call the daycare and make the arrangements. I’m back on Friday night, and then there is a meeting on Monday with the Principal, Teacher, School Psychologist, and a few others to discuss Jake’s return to school.
