Today when I came to pick up my daughter the teacher made a point to come out in to the hallway with my daughter who was almost in tears and had her fingers in her ears. Her teacher went on to tell me that my daughter (5yrs. old) is too big to be putting her finger in her ears. She went on to ask me if she has some sort of favorite toy or something from home I could send her so she could redirect her when she does this. I did explain to her that my daughter has sensory issues and that loud noises or alot of people bother her and she will do this. She will also do this if she is upset or does not like something. She has a difficult time with transitions, understanding and accepting change. The teacher just said well she did this most of the day even if the class was not noisy so can you think of something she might bring with her. Huh? I don't get this, can someone please explain to me? The new teacher is kind of young and I do not know what if any experience she has had with kids with special needs. This may be her learning process. Do I go to the school Administrator and question this or is this normal should I just leave it alone?
The other thing that really upset me today was while I was talking to the teacher I bent to console my sobbing child only to feel that she had (no exaggeration) about a pound of pee in her pull up. Mind you she may have just gone but apparently it leaked through and there were dry pee stains on the back of her shorts. I asked the teacher if I could re-enter the classroom letting her know how wet she was unfortunately my daughter took off down the hall running. Should I even bother with this because it seems as though it would be my word against there's?
This entire week has been so trying and stressful - I just wonder what tomorrow has in store for us!
