This is our first year starting out with an official diagnosis. What handouts do you include for the new teacher? I know that Scooter's support team is happy to help, but I like the idea of initiating some of this from the parent perspective.

Interesting. I think that's a very good sign! :-) I imagine L to be one of those kids who only does better and better each year. Ready for the more challenging work of 5th grade, ready for a more "grown up" classroom. I hope you'll keep us posted! Good luck L!!

Mouse--I'm sure you know this site:

http://www.aspergersyndrome.org/ but if you go there you can find links to handouts for teachers, etc. This one

http://www.aspergersyndrome.org/Articles/Asperger-s-Syndrome-Guide-For-T...

is the one we use, and we tweak it a little to fit L.

Thanks, Omaha--I think (I hope!) you might be right--I think L. will do better with the bigger challenges of higher grades!
