I have been a bit unhappy with my son's school lately, but since he is only in kindergarten I have started thinking about starting a school for him. So I have started to dream big and maybe I can figure out how to do this for real down the line.

So dream with me folks! What would the dream school for your child look like?

My dream school has multi year classrooms, year round with short breaks, is inclusive with a big community of aspies but plenty of others, maybe 3:1 nuerotypical to ASD. OT based physical exercise twice a day, intensive social skills and PLAY as part of the curriculum, and paired grouping for pullout services for EVERY childs strengths and weaknesses so my kid doesnt feel so damn singled out!

Hi my son has a wonderful young teacher and he gets to pick a friend to take break time with or involve in games as part of his skills development according to his IEP. He is v popular as the kids get to escape classwork for about 15 min and play games with him taking turns, explaining rules, winning and losing etc. He gets to spend time with all the kids as they get rotated and it works out well. Also for his sensory breaks he gets to do stuff he really enjoys and doesn't mind coming back to class afterwards!
