am i overreacting? (about something that happened at my autistic sons daycare)edit
my son was diagnosed with autism back in april. he is high-functioning.
his teacher was a special-ed teacher years ago and insists my son doesn't have autism because "she doesn't see it" all the experts say otherwise but that is another story.
today at his school they had trike day. every kid brought a trike to ride around the parking lot. i decided to pop by today and see how he was doing on trike day. i get there and there are like 20 kids riding around the parking lot having a great time. my son is standing off to the side looking miserable and about to cry. i asked him what was wrong and his little face just crumpled. he was obviously overstimulated and needed to be removed from the situation. his teacher just said "oh, he didn't feel like riding!" i took him off by himself and we just talked and stuff until he settled down and after about half the kids went back in he was able to get on a trike and ride for a while.
i am pretty upset that they just ignored his signs of being overstimulated and let him just stand there and be upset. i am not sure how far to take this. should i make a big deal about it, or am i completely overreacting?
i am working on getting them into a new daycare it's just taking time.
thank you for reading
