Was this the right advice for my 4 year old?

I've never done this before. He is my first and only child. He has moderate autism and when he gets overstimulated, he talks nonstop. Not yelling or screaming, just incessant talking.  He's in special Ed, so you think his classmates would be a little more understanding.  My son is also extremely sensitive. He came home from his first day of school in tears because a "pretty girl" in his class kept telling him to be quiet because he was taking too much.

i know this isn't a big deal and that'd perfectly nice of her to say.  However I just told my son that the next time someone tells him to be quiet and his teacher doesn't mind him talking to just calmly say "mind your own business"

i don't think this is mean. Did I do the right thing?

He should say that ignore her and if she keeps it up,he should tell the teacher. Or maybe ask him to be moved.

I've dealt with this before . It's not mean, but you also have to teach your son everyone is not as talkative as he is . I bet he's a sweetheart .

I'm sorry but maybe he was disturbing her when she was trying to pay attention to the class. If she wasn't rude about it, then why would you teach your son to be rude to her.

Well, although I love him, it is really INCESSANT. Since it is a special Ed class maybe she has some kind of problem with noise. I don't want him to be known as a tattletale or a troublemaker. I thought if he just said to mind your own business and then walked away, it would stop. Was I wrong?

Teaching your son to be rude is never a great idea. If the teacher doesn't mind him talking, tell him to go find another classmate who wants to chat. Tell him that maybe that girl didn't feel like talking.

Part of being in school is teaching kids to be sociable. If he does all the talking then nobody else can get a word in.

So you can't see how constant talking in a classroom setting would be...oh, um...annoying?

Well,was he talking to her or some one else? If he was talking to some one else then she has no business telling him to be quiet. Either he can move with the person he is talking to or she can move... One of those,whoever was there first deals.. And if it persists,talk to the teacher.. The first few days set the stage for the whole year.. :\
