Four days into junior kindergarden, my son's teacher called me in to tell me that in her opinion as a teacher and a parent, my son was 'abnormal' and that he had an anger management problem. She said this in front of him, and in the car going home he regurgitated it all right back to me (I asked what happened, and he said "I just have an anger problem.") He doesn't have an anger problem- he does have a sensory processing disorder, which was detailed in the file that she never bothered to read! I went home and basically bawled for hours... then the next day I went back with guns blazing and told her I would be pleased to go for a psychology assessment and provide her and the principal with recommendations on how best to work with him, suggested that she read the documentation that she already had in her possession, and told her NEVER to talk about my son like he wasn't in the room again. That fixed things! LOL!
