Patty: My second grade son is being forced into general ed and does fine academically. However he has suffered from bullying and is now very introverted at school. During lunch recess he has been ridiculed when trying to play kickball. Now the kids switched to soccer and my son just wanders around trying to figure out what to do. I have reported the bullying to the school several times and for the most part it has stopped. What can I do to have them see that socialization is the key part of autism? They just throw him outside in unstructured activities with no protection or guidance. I am ready to pull him out of school after the morning is over because that is when all the academic parts of school are. Afternoons are lunch and electives.
