kerry: My son has autism, severe dysgraphia among other things. He is in a full time sdc in high school and has a1:1 aide/scribe. Son also has no control over gas. Can’t feel it. Only knows when he hears it. Today in math he farted. Scribe told him she wouldn’t scribe if he was going to fart and walked away. Son was left to write on his own and then had a meltdown in class because he didn’t understand the lesson and couldn’t keep up with the writing. School thinks he has control of gas. He doesn’t. What to do? This is ongoing issue.

You need to request an IEP meeting to discuss the issues going on with your son. Either bring a note from the doctor or get the doctor on the phone to confirm your son’s issues with gas. I would even talk with the AIDE/SCRIBE and explain to her that he has no control over gas. You could even request for a new AIDE to help assists your son with his needs do this at the meeting.

A letter from your son’s Doctor should be good enough. Might request an IEP meeting with the school nurse to talk about the issue.
