My son whom is six in kindergarten has a 1:1 aid as part of his IEP. The other day at school he ran out of the building, down the bus path, across the front of another school, into the parking lot, and in the woods. It took four teachers to catch him. In the woods is a huge swamp. My town is full of swamps. The school did not tell me. I heard it from my daughter whom goes to the other school down the hill. Nothing was written in his communication book that is part of his IEP. His 1:1 aid is part of his IEP as well. He has a cognitive disorder and a mood disorder. I told the school about his wandering before school began. What would you do if this was your son and the school did not notify you of this incident? Am I over-reacting for being upset?

I would have been furious. You are his mother and deserve full disclosure. Not info on everything except how your six year old son got outside!!! That is just plain scary. Someone could have driven by and picked him up, he could have gotten hit, or just hurt. I would let the teachers know that I had found out what happened, and from now on they better let you know EVERYTHING that happens.
