The Denver Autism Wheel

Back to school

Posted on: August 1, 2010

By now it’s a cliché that the summer’s just flown by, and it’s hard to believe school starts soon. Time for the obligatory trip to the office supply store for pencils, erasers, notebooks and whatnot. If you haven’t had a chance to meet the new teachers, now’s the time! Most schools have a teacher list online, including emails, so take a minute to drop him or her a line and introduce yourself and your child.

Speaking of which, do you have your Autism packet ready? I can hear it now: “My what??” you say…

I created an autism packet that I’ve been using for going on three years. I give it to new teachers and paras to give them a head start on what Chris’ autism looks like, how to have more good days than bad days with him, to introduce Karl and me. It’s a set of explanations that I hope answers a lot of the common questions new teachers might have about having a child with autism in the classroom for the year. I’m attaching it here. It’s a Word Doc, and I’ve inserted some fields for your child’s name, your name, contact numbers and other bureaucracy. Feel free to use or modify for any specifics you think your child’s teacher should know going into the new school year!
