The school district has decided one of my autistic boys would benefit from a life skills class. The details were very sketchy. Anyone out here familiar with what happens in such a classroom setting?? I'm rather hesitant about if it is the best place for him to be. He does well academically ( B honor roll commended TAKS ALT testing) so I'm not sure why they decided to move him. A little reassurance would be nice. or a fair warning would help too. UGH I just can't decide what is best for him.

I'm not sure what they do in elementary but in middle and high school, they bring kids out into the community and teach them practical things like how to buy an item at a store, how to make change, how to ride public transportation, etc. You can ask to observe the class before agreeing to place your son there.
