I'm just wondering if any of you have done anything to help your child with Asperger's in the transition from school year to school year with new teachers, new classmates, etc. I was thinking of requesting at his IEP meeting that his non-classified best friend be in his 1st grade class next year to make the transition from one grade to the next easier. As it is, ds has a difficult time just transitioning back into the classroom after a week break. His friend's mother was planning on requesting the same thing on the grounds that her son has social anxiety and would do better with his best friend. Is this possible in an IEP and what could I say to justify it?
