Re: Teacher Bullying Autistic Son
We coach the teachers and administrators at our son's school constantly about knowing when one's limits are being reached because the person on the spectrum is not going to lose when it comes to a battle of wills. Frankly, the biggest problem is usually ego; it takes a lot of experience to develop the ability to set that aside and not treat negative interactions personally. Adults often can't handle not winning.
I sometimes struggle to master my reactions and my training has been a brutally intense, ten year 24/7 immersion program. So, whenever I hear a camp counselor, teacher, coach or someone else tell me they have experience with Autism in this sort of "I've got this covered" manner, I expect them to fail and blame my kid. Unfortunately, I've been just about 100% correct in that assessment.
