Reply to "Special Needs Kids in Rotation"

Hi Cindy!

Thanks for your post! We have an autistic boy who will be rotating this year. He's 6, and up until now he's been in the preschool class. His mom told me today (by e-mail) he should be in the kindergarten class. I'm somewhat concerned about him rotating, as he doesn't do well with change. He does like the computer lab, but his parents don't want him to use them. (I still haven't figured that one out). I'm trying to encourage this family to come up during the week and try out the programs, but so far they've declined.

So, how do I encourage them to try the computers and how can we help this child participate and not get agitated when he has to move to the next workshop? I was thinking I will have to have the schedule of workshops a couple of months in advance, but that isn't always easy. What do you suggest?

Thanks,
