My son has mild/moderate behavioral issues that only seem to happen at preschool:
-occasional (once a week) smacking or hitting other children
-back-talking (i.e. "I hate you!" "I want to kill you!") on a regular basis- he DOES NOT say he wants to kill us at home, and we have cut out anything mildly violent from his environment.
-not listening to teachers
-not participating, or refusing to participate in group activities
The director at the preschool has suggested a therapeutic support staff person (TSS) for him. She is not aware of how to obtain such assistance and neither am I. I guess my question is- Does anyone have experience obtaining a TSS? Does it even sound necessary?
