Tonight was my 9 year old daughters open house at school. She was so excited that both my family and my ex husbands family were all going to be there. In total 12 of us were there just for her. After a few minutes of Rachel showing us around her class room I heard 2 of her classmates talking about artwork on the wall with their parents. Then they pointed at another picture and said thats Rachels art she is annoying and crazy. A momment later they moved on to another project that had photos of the kids and they once again poined and said isn't Rachels picture dumb she looks like she is high or on drugs. Not 5 seconds late 3 more boys started making comments about her. At this point Im struggling not to cry and my brother has taken Rachel out of the room to another class to try to keep her from hearing it. My mom and my boyfriend said they heard everything and had been on the other side of the room and so had Rachel's other grandma. I told the teacher what was going on and that since everyone in this class was special needs why were they picking on her and saying such hurtful things. Her reponse was "oh i will talk to them but you know since she is the only girl in the class its hard to keep her from being picked on". I don't know what to do right now. there are 19 kids in this special ed class and Rachel is the girl. With her Autism she doesnt always know people are being mean to her. And most of the other kids are in the class with add and adhd problems and don't know what Autism is. Anyone have any advice that will help?
