My son is 6 and is in first grade. He's been in it about 2 weeks. He does have a autism dx (high functioning) but does not qualify for services at school. Last year he did great at school(full day kindy). Rough at home but that's all. This year he's had some issues at school. Nothing severe but getting mad or crying. His teacher is amazing and has an autistic daughter so she recognizes his emotional issues early and helps him diffuse before it's too late. So he hasn't had any full blown meltdowns at school yet.
I'm curious about what's normal for his age vs what is not. If a child gets there chair taken away is it normal for them to get mad and start crying? Are first graders still emotional? Everyone was warned to stop playing with their chairs, everyone else stopped besides Ds. He ended up falling backwards. Which is why it was taken away-it was safety concern. He didn't get in trouble. But he wasn't happy.
Just trying to sort through what are age issues and what are autism issues
