 Today is the first day of school here bouncing momand i just got back from dropping Robby off.  He is in a selfcontained classroom with 8 kids, 1 teacher and 2 aides.  Robby has the same teacher as last year, and 2 of the students that were in his class last year are also in his class this year.  But their are 5 that Robby didn't know, and Robby approached one (Robby does not have any of the anti social charecteristics of autism-mostly stimming, sensory seeking, echolalia, scripted responses) and said "I'm Robby, What's your name?"  I felt so bad for Robby...the kiddo didn't answer him....so Robby just kept repeating it, over and over getting louder and louder.  I told him the little boy's name, but he didn't want to hear it from me, he wanted the little boy to answer him.

Aww!  Poor Robby!  He probably didn't understand why the little boy wasn't answering him.  :(  Maybe they will end up making friends anyway..

How was his first day??

He had a great first day back!  No tantrum at drop off time, except for the little guy who wouldn't answer him getting him riled up....but when daddy showed up to get him from school, Robby didn't want to leave!
