DS(6) was in a "role model" preschool class last year. Which means that half the kids have special needs and half are advanced. The purpose is for the special needs kids to learn from kids their age but I liked it because it taught my son acceptance of others.
So I wasn't sure how to handle the meeting tomorrow. I decided to tell DS that they had special needs so they seem like adults but they think like little kids so don't act weird around them or say anything rude like "what's wrong with you?" So today I gave the reminder speech and said dont say anything like "yeah, I know your special my mom told me I had friends with special needs last year." And he said "no ill just say hi your a normal kid!" :-(
Anyone have any advice? I know he wouldn't say anything mean intentional but any advice on this would be helpful
