    Re: Autistic Child
    retired K teacher

    I assume he has an IEP since there is a resource teacher. Ask
    the resource teacher come and observe him while you are the
    only teacher in the room and get some ideas from the sped
    teacher. You can also call for an IEP meeting to modify things.

    If he doesn't have an IEP then you need to start the ball rolling
    for child study, intervention, or whatever you call it when you
    meet with the parents and staff to get him tested.

    In either case, be sure you are documenting what is happening
    in the classroom.
