My Child is 10 years old and in the 4th grade. He has Aspergers and does not communicate well with me or anybody for that matter. We have been having a lot of problems with the school. They do not call me. Do not communicate with me. He has been suspended several times revently. I have no idea what is going on and he kept telling me that the teacher just yells. I sent a voice recorder to school with him and that first day I heard yelling and total chaos. The whole class sounded a mess. I waited a few days and sent it with him again. The battery started to die and it started beeping. The teacher took it from him and I have heard nothing from the school. No one called nothing. I sent it so I could know what was going on with my child and now I am worried that I could get into trouble for recording the teacher. Anyone been through this or have any advice. I tried looking on the internet and have been unable to find anything.Answer Question

Have you brought this up to the principal?? At Least talk to the superintendent?

I don't know if it depends on what state you live in or not. Have you went in and talked to the teacher you recorded? I think now would be the time. I wouldn't go in and seem unsure either. You are doing what you have to, end of story. You were not wrong for recording your own childs activities throughout the day. I would be pushy since he or she doesn't seem to think it's a good idea to contact you.

I would take him out of that school immediately. Your son isn't able to tell you exactly what is going on but the yelling is perfectly clear. You obviously aren't going to get any cooperation and in this position I can only say what I would do which is that he would no longer be going to that school period.
