It is a male tendency, which is why boys with Aspergers have more difficulty. My son Mike would get so wound up in middle school that he would just begin to release a string of obsceneties that would have made the father in "A Christmas Story" blush. I thought it was kind of funny.
They would let him take a walk whenever he needed to. He seems to have found his niche in HS. They work on a block (90min) schedule, which is easier for him. Less movement, fewer things to forget=less stress. He is in a program created especially for kids with autistic spectrum disorder.
Our only concern is whether he is getting enough education to pass the NYS Regents exams. The teacher in this program must teach to the level of the weakest student. In NYS all students including disabled and foreign born have to pass these rigorous exams or leave with out a diploma. Some parents are sending their seniors to live with family out of state to finish HS.
Good lord, that seems kind of rough. I can understand wanting a certain level of competence (exam or whatever), but if that is the case teach to the level needed to pass it not the level of the lowest student. And people wonder why I got out of education.

I second (third?) that. I tend to get irritable and downright bitchy in overwhelming situations. If it's bad enough, it turns to fury.

Things I choose to let go:
All grains - including rice
Legumes - including peanut butter
Nuts and nut butters
Alcohol and soda
Acidic foods, such as pineapple and tomato
Coffee and tea
Dairy - including butter
I'm choosing to do this......... I don't HAVE to.
I'm doing this because I'm worth it - because I'm worthy - because I love myself.
I tend to zone out, selective hearing so to speak. We all have to have a coping mechanism.
oh wow.. each state has its owb IDIOTcincrisies (I know I spelled it wrong ) Kansas is full of them. Way to go trying to get what you need for your kid!
