Is it common for kids to have no issues at school and then save it all for home?
I had my sons (3) preschool teacher conference last night and they do not see a lot of the behaviors we struggle with at home. He does not sensory seek there or have meltdowns (he does shut down occasionally though, usually during circle time), he doesn't have trouble transitioning and doesn't show much rigidity. He stims occasionally but doesn't yet interfere with learning. He interacts with the children appropriatly, but only if they approach him or ask him a question. He doesn't seek them out to play or ever initiate conversation on his own.
At home he acts crazy needing to be squeezed and jumping off things and stimming like crazy when he gets home. He gets aggressive with peers in the house (I do childcare in my home). His OCD like tendencies are in full force and he has to have everything the same way and melts down when things don't go the way he planned or if plans change.
I feel like his special Ed teacher must think I am a whack job! Any one else deal with this?? He is in a very small class of 7 students. It's an integrated class mixed with 3 and 4 year olds, some have delays and dx and others are NT.
