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?
