And discovered DD is quite the class clown! I mean, we think she is funny but last year she was quite disinterested in kids and quiet. Well, she is cracking jokes to the point of it being a bit of a problem. When the teacher was calling attendance, one kid said Happy Birthday instead of present. So my kid pipes up when her name was called, Merry. Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Happy Kwanza!
My group had DD, 3 boys and one other girl. DD really tried with the girl. She asked her, Norah, what type of candy did you give out for Halloween? The little girl just looked at her and told her Halloween was over. I could tell my DD was really trying to think of things to say. That stung a bit, to see her try so hard and get it just off the mark. I mean, kids talk about Halloween but most don't ask what candy their parents bought right? The girl was complaining her hair was in her face and my DD told her they could try to find a barrette and the girl told her to leave her alone.
The good news was the boys loved her lol! They fought over who got to hold her hand and they talked easily with her. So that was nice to see! Anyone else have an ASD kid who is trying to get reactions with humour? I talked to her after about what is appropriate but who knows if it got through. My biggest fear is kids laughing at her instead of with her.
