One of my friends posted this on facebook. I have to say it's about time. I can tell you Jay's current teacher needs it and I am actually going to request it. With alot of children on the spectrum being integrated into mainstream classes it should be mandatory for mainstream teachers get training.

I think it's awesome! Bobby isn't mainstreamed yet and probably won't be for a couple more years, but I worry about what kind of teacher he will have when the time comes. One of my close friends is a middle school teacher in a district that doesn't have the resources to keep ASD kids out of mainstream classes until they are ready. Its hard because he has 20 different ASD kids this year and has really had to educate himself on how to work with each of them, on top of managing the rest of his classes.

We are trained to teach all types of learners. Why wouldn't we be trained to teach autistic children?

Next, they need to work on the bus drivers . A few months back, Bobby got written up for stimming! I understand that they need to maintain order on the bus, but FFS, what do they expect from a mini bus full of autistic kids? They're on that bus for a reason.

My friend had 2 boys with Autism. They are almost 17 and 8. Our school system is pretty good with handling Autistic children but the bus drivers suck. She's rarely ever had a problem with a teacher but regularly has problems with bus drivers.

I think it's a good idea to give teachers as much training as possible. It's hard to teach it all because each Autistic child is still an individual and Autism can be so different from child to child.
