Thank you all for your imput. I find it harder to deal with the school then it is to deal with my son. I constantly reasure him that he is wonderful and that he is doing great. The school is not equipted to deal with children such as my son and that really bothers me. Why is it that they find it necessary to constantly put him down and make him feel as if he's the only child that causes problems. This is my constant argument with the school because most of the time, their complaints are so ridiculous that it makes me wonder if they should be teaching children at all. He is only five and even though I understand their frustration sometimes, I do not understand why they don't allow his age group to be more care free and simply let them be children. I have voiced my disagreement on some of their curriculum, when it comes to my son because I know him better then anyone. They don't seem to want to change some things to fit his needs. For example: if he doesn't want to do a certain activity and wants to go to another activity, the teacher gets mad and tries to make him do what she wants him to do. I've asked what was the big deal if he was allowed to move on to an activity that he liked as long as he was cooperative, quite and learning. Their answer was that he needs to learn discipline, but at five years of age, you're lucky if they follow rules at all. I'm sorry that I'm rambling but it's very frustrating for me to find out that the public school system basically gives up on children that present any kind of challenge and do not follow the "rules". Again, thank you for the responses because they do help me and I will look into the Sudbury method.
