About Me

A couple of years ago, I found my autistic child locked in a small cold cement cell at his school. The cell had no windows, no furniture, and was slate gray with low lighting. The cell was also sound proofed so parents and teachers outside wouldn’t hear him crying. I am writing this blog as a campaign to change the way these children are perceived and treated in our society.

#8 101 Ways a Teacher Could Help a Child with Autism

Category: Before the Child’s first day in the classroom

Suggestion #8:  Write down questions you have for the parent.

Prepare a list of questions for the child’s parents that will help you know the child better; make the list taking into consideration the information that you have already gathered in Suggestion #2 and #3.  Contact the psychologist in your school to see if they have a list of questions or literature that would aid you in making your list of question.  Ensure that your questions include the child’s likes and dislikes.
